The Nigerian Army has said that Boko Haram terrorists have fled the infamous Sambisa Forest as a result of the heavy bombardment of the terrorists’ hideouts by the Air Force and Army artillery.
The Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Col Sani Usman made the development known in a statement. He said, “This is to inform the public 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.
“The public are please requested 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.
“We would like to reassure the public of the confidentiality of the information provided and reiterate our commitment to the clearance of the remnants of Boko Haram terrorists.”
