calls to members of the Boko Haram terrorist group to surrender or face defeat
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.

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.
