The Nigerian Army under President Muhammadu Buhari has begged Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorists to ask for amnesty and settlement, saying soldiers and the citizens are not happy people are dying.
The General Officer Commanding (GOC), 7 Division, Nigerian Army, Brig.-Gen. A.A. Eyitayo made the statement at a feast organised for reporters by the army on Sunday in Maiduguri.
“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,” Mr Eyitayo said.
