ABUJA (Sundiata Post) – Boko Haram terrorists are said to be fleeing in droves from their enclaves in Sambisa Forest following combined ground and aerial offensive of the Nigerian military.
The Director of Army Public Relations, (DAPR), Col. Sani Usman, in a statement on Tuesday, said that “due to aerial bombardment and concerted efforts of the ground troops, and facing imminent annihilation, Boko Haram terrorists have been deserting Sambisa forest in droves trying to disperse to various parts of the country”.
“The cowards are running away from their well noted enclave in Sambisa forest for their lives. Consequently it becomes necessary to inform the public, especially well meaning Nigerians, to be more vigilant and security conscious,” Usman noted.
He urged members of the public to be observant and report any suspicious persons or group of persons to the military or any of the security agencies to enable timely detection and apprehension of the fleeing insurgents before they mingle with the society and commit havoc.
He also assured “the public of the confidentiality of the information provided and reiterate our commitment to the clearance of the remnants of Boko Haram terrorists”.
