The latest list was launched by the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai alongside Borno State Governor Babagana Zulum at the Nigerian Army Super Camp, Chabbal in Konduga Local Government Area of the state.

A Civilian JTF was also launched to work alongside hunters and vigilantes to help tackle the terrorist sect.

According to Buratai, “the induction of Civilian JTF into the operation will greatly help in containing the activities of Boko Haram because of their knowledge of the terrain and identifying Boko Haram members”.

Zulum renewed his call on Boko Haram insurgents who are hiding in Sambisa forest and bushes in the fringes of Lake Chad to lay down their arms and surrender.

“For those that are still in the bush, terrorising innocent lives and destroying properties, I call upon all of them to surrender.

“You are killing your brothers and sisters, destroying your own infrastructures that were built using money generated through tax from your forefathers. Today, we have all seen the level of devastation, nobody is been left, we are all affected in one way or another,” he said.
