The Nigerian Army has said security forces know the hideouts and strongholds of Boko Haram in the country, hence, they should surrender as troops were already closing in on them.
The Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Col. Sani Usman, in a statement on Sunday, urged the insurgents to embrace the peace option as failure to do so, would result in catastrophic consequences.
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”.
