Families urged to influence terrorists to surrender

07 October 2015, 08:00Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Nigerian Army has reiterated calls to members of the Boko Haram terrorist group to surrender or face defeat and prosecution.

Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, advised the terrorists to follow their colleagues who had conceded defeat in recent weeks.

“This is to warn all Boko Haram terrorists wherever they are, to. desist from all acts of terrorism, surrender themselves and face the law now," Usman said.

He claimed the Army was 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 are fast closing up with them."

The Army has in recent weeks reported hundreds of terrorists had surrendered.

Usman equally appealed to the parents, families and friends of all those involved in Boko Haram terrorists activities to kindly persuade more members to desist and  renounce their membership of the terrorist organisation forthwith.

“We also wish to appeal to the good people of the North Eastern part of the country, in particular those of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe States to prevail on these terrorists to renounce their evil ways immediately,” Usman said.

Some 13 000 people have been killed in the North East owing to the insurgency.
