Army forecasts more terrorists to surrender

14 September 2015, 07:48Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The upbeat uniformed forces pledged to intensify the onslaught against the Boko Haram sect amid some members of the outlawed group surrendering.

It was reported this past weekend the new strategies being employed by the military had started yielding positive results with scores of terrorists surrendering to troops and many more willing to surrender.

Sani Kukasheka Usman, Acting Army Spokesperson, said the Nigerian Army in conjunction with the Nigerian Airforce and other security agencies would continue to devise and implement effective strategies to bring Boko Haram terrorism to a speedy end.

“It will also continue to receive surrendering suspects and assures innocent ones among them that surrender is the only option open to them,” Usman said.

The spokesperson said the Nigerian Army wished to also appreciate the support and information it received from well meaning citizens.

“More of these are required to help towards quicker obliteration of the Boko Haram scourge in our nation.”

New strategies recently employed include sustained offensive operations, pre-emptive air strikes by the Nigerian Airforce and routes blocking by ground troops all geared towards constricting and snuffing out the Boko Haram terrorists.

“Many of the terrorists that willingly surrendered painted images of mass panic and hysteria among their erstwhile colleagues who are feeling the noose tightening on their necks with the relentless efforts of troops and renewed vigour in operations inspired by the personal leadership of the Chief of Army Staff,” said Usman.
