The army, in a statement by its spokesman, Brig.-Gen. Sani Usman on Wednesday, told the members 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.
“This is because your ideology of Boko Haram is dead and no longer tenable.
“There is no reason to be suffering or fighting a lost cause.
“As you are aware, your leaders have abandoned you and could no longer be of any help to you,” it disclosed.
Newsmen report that the Federal Government recently redeployed service chiefs to the front line as well as purchased more fighter jets to combat the menace of terrorism in the Northeast.
