The Nigerian Army on Tuesday issued a final warning to Boko Haram to surrender without further delay or face the dire consequences of their refusal to obey, Vanguard reports.
Sani Usman, Acting Director, Army Public Relations released a statement that contained the warning following a security meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari and the Service Chiefs at the Presidential Villa, Monday:
This is to finally 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 our troops have closed up with them.
We equally appeal to members of the international community and the world at large, to kindly persuade Boko Haram terrorists and their international collaborators to desist from acts of terrorism and renounce their membership of the terrorist organization forthwith.
They should also immediately and unconditionally release all abducted persons in their custody, including the Chibok schoolgirls.
