Nigerian Troops Claim Boko Haram Terrorists Are Surrendering In Droves

Nigerian troops now claim Boko Haram terrorists are surrendering in droves due to new strategies and tactics employed by the military.

A press statement issued by the spokesperson of the Nigerian army, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, said the sustained bombardment of the enclaves of the terrorists as well as increased aerial bombardment has place the terrorists in weaker position. President Muhammadu Buhari is billed to meet wit the President Francois Hollande of France on a three day official visit starting from Monday to discuss regional security in the West African region ravaged by Boko Haram islamist militants.

The new strategies being employed by the military have started yielding positive results with scores of terrorists surrendering to troops and many more willing to surrender.  The new  strategies employed included sustained offensive operations, pre-emptive air strikes by the Nigerian Airforce  and routes blocking by ground troops all geared towards constricting and snuffing out the Boko Haram terrorists.

Many of the terrorists that willinly surrendered painted images of mass panic and hysteria among their erstwhile colleagues who are feeling the noose tightening on their necks with the relentless efforts of troops and renewed vigour in operations inspired by the personal leadership of the Chief of Army Staff.

Terrorists also seem to have an inkling of what happens to surrendered suspects as regards screening and deredicalisation of innocent ones among them.

The Nigerian Army in conjunction with the Nigerian Airforce and other security agencies will continue to devise and implement effective strategies to bring Boko Haram terrorism to a speedy end. It will also continue to receive surrendering suspects and assures innocent ones among them that surrender is the only option open to them. The Nigerian Army wishes to also appreciate the great support and information it receives from well meaning citizens. More of these are required to help towards quicker obliteration of the Boko Haram scourge in our nation.

Thank you.

Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman

Acting Director Army Public Relations
