Countries urged to persuade terrorists to surrender

21 October 2015, 09:18Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - The international community has been urged to influence the Boko Haram terrorists to surrender.

The call by the Nigerian Army comes after  the organisation issued what it said was a “final warning” to the insurgents “wherever they are, to desist from all acts of terrorism, surrender themselves and face the law now.”

“We equally appeal to members of the international community and the world at large, to kindly persuade Boko Haram terrorists and their international collaborators to desist from acts of terrorism and renounce their membership of the terrorist organization forthwith,” said Army spokesperson, Sani Kukasheka Usman.

“We wish to inform them that we are aware of all their hideouts, camps and enclaves. They should follow their colleagues who have so far surrendered.

Failure to surrender will result in serious consequences as our troops have closed up with them.”

Usman said the terrorists should also immediately and unconditionally release all abducted people in their custody including the Chibok school girls.

More than 200 schoolgirls were abducted in Chibok, Borno State last year.
