He reiterated the commitment of the Nigerian Army to sustain the tempo and clear unrepentant Boko Haram insurgents from the shores of Nigeria.

The army also called on the remnants of the Boko Haram terrorists to surrender now to avoid humiliating death from the renewed onslaught of the army.

He told the members of Boko Haram that their leaders have already abandoned them.

“This is to call on the remnants of Boko Haram terrorists wherever they are hiding, (to surrender) and give up forthwith.
