13 April 2016, 17:50

Nigerian Army has warned members of the public to be more vigilant and security conscious against Boko Haram members fleeing the Sambisa forest.

These are said to be fleeing the forest in the northeast that is their stronghold, to various parts of the country following aerial bombardment and concerted efforts of the ground by troops.

“Due to aerial  bombardment and concerted efforts of the ground troops, and facing  imminent annihilation, Boko Haram terrorists have been deserting  Sambisa forest in droves trying to disperse to various parts of the country," Director Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, said.

"The cowards are running away from their well noted enclave in Sambisa forest for their lives. Consequently it becomes necessary to inform the public, especially well meaning Nigerians, to be more vigilant and security conscious.”

The Army spokesman requested the public to be observant and report any suspicious persons or group of persons to the military or any of the security agencies.

He reassured the public of the confidentiality of the information provided and reiterated the commitment of security agencies to the clearance of remnants of Boko Haram terrorists.
