Report gathered that the Nigerian Army has said security forces are aware of the hideouts and strongholds of terror group, Boko Haram, in the country.
The Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Col. Sani Usman, urged the insurgents to embrace the peace option and surrender as the troops were already closing in a statement on Sunday.
Usman called on Nigerians to persuade the insurgents to renounce their membership of the deadly sect.
He said, “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 our troops are fast closing up on them.
“We equally appeal to all Nigerians to kindly persuade them to desist and renounce their membership of the terrorist organisation forthwith.”
