Nigerian Army urges Boko Haram insurgents to seek forgiveness

The Nigerian Army has urged insurgents left in the Boko Haram sect, to surrender and embrace peace.

Brig.-Gen. A.A. Eyitayo, the General Officer Commanding (GOC), 7 Division, Nigerian Army, made this call during a feast organised for journalists on Sunday in Maiduguri.

He noted that nobody including the military was happy over the bloodshed, hence, the need for the remnants of the insurgents to leverage on the amnesty and repent their nefarious ways.

This, he said, would avail them (insurgents) the opportunity to enjoy rehabilitation and acquire skills to enable them to live a useful life in society.

The GOC lauded the contributions of the media in the counter-insurgency campaign and urged it to enlighten the insurgents to see the light and repent from their wasteful ventures.

“We are not here for bloodletting, nobody is happy that people are dying.

“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,” Eyitayo said.
