We Will Accept Boko Haram Leader, Abubakar Shekau, If He Surrenders – Military Declares


The Military said that it will accept the offer of the Lader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau to surrender.

It said that 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.
