02 October 2015, 08:44Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - The Army has reiterated its call for terrorists to surrender or face annihilation.

This follows reports from the uniformed forces some 80 Boko Haram terrorists had surrendered to troops of the Operation Lafiya Dole in Bama, Borno State.

"Other terrorists are encouraged to also surrender or face total annihilation," said Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, Acting Director of Army Public Relations.

"As the new name of the operation states 'achievement of total peace is a must'."

Usman expressed hope the Army and Nigerian Air Force, in conjunction with other security agencies, were totally committed to the achievement of the three- month Presidential deadline for the eradication of terrorism in Nigeria.

The deadline was set in August.

"It will be recalled that we have repeatedly stated that surrender is the only option available to insurgents," he said.

The said terrorists were commanders, suppliers and foot soldiers confirmed to have been involved in several attacks especially on Bama town, Borno State.

Usman said they surrendered as a result of the "intense heat" and continuous offensive action embarked on by troops.
