The Nigerian Military has revealed it will accept the offer of the leader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau to surrender.
This came after some Nigerians had taken to Twitter to air their opinions saying all they want is Shekau’s head.
However, a spokesman for the military said if Shekau follows the laid down procedures for surrendering during conflict or war, the military will profile him according to international standard.
The Coordinator of the Directorate of Defence Media Operations (DDMO), Major General John Enenche, disclosed this on Friday during an interview on Channels TV
“Shekau’s recently released videos are subjected to forensic analysis. There are rumours that they are ready to surrender. If the insurgents truly want to surrender, there is a procedure to do that. If he (Shekau) surrenders through the procedure, we will accept it,” he said
It would be recalled that the Military authorities recently said that with the grand offensive mounted by the Armed Forces of Nigeria against Boko Haram and the Islamic State for West African Province (ISWAP), the body language of Shekau, is that of surrender.
Meanwhile, the military through the Air Task Force of Operation LAFIYA DOLE, said it destroyed compounds housing Boko Haram terrorists’ leaders at Bulawa in Sambisa Forest, Borno State.
