‘Surrender To Seek Forgiveness And Reconcilliation’ – Nigerian Army Begs Boko Haram

The Nigerian army has advised Boko Haram terorrists to drop their arms and “seek forgiveness and reconciliation.”

AA Eyitayo, the general officer commanding, GOC, 7 Division, Nigerian army, made the call on Sunday, June 13, 2021, at an event organised for journalists by the army in Maiduguri, Borno state.

Eyitayo said Boko Haram insurgents are in a state of disarray, following the recent military onslaught against them.

The brigadier-general, who is also the commander sector 1, operation Hadin Kai, asked the media to enlighten the insurgents about the call for them to “shun violence”.

“We are not here for bloodletting, nobody is happy that people are dying,” the GOC said.

“Some of them (insurgents) are listening to the media so it is good for us to appeal to them through the media to shun violence, turn up to seek forgiveness and reconciliation.”
