The Nigerian Army has again warned members of Boko Haram terrorist group to surrender and face the law as failure to do so will result in serious consequences for insurgents.


The warning is contained in a statement signed by Col. Sani Usman, the acting Director Army Public Relations, a copy of which was made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Sunday.

The statement said that the army was aware of Boko Haram’s hideouts, camps and enclaves and “our troops are fast closing up on them”.

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

“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 the troops are fast closing up on them.”

The statement also appealed to Nigerians to persuade the insurgents to desist from their acts and renounce their membership of the terrorist organisation forthwith.
