The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Yusuf Buratai, has issued a strong worded poem to the elusive leader of the dreaded Boko Haram group to either surrender his arms and embrace peace or face perdition.
In the poem titled “End of the Road,” and posted on his Facebook account on Wendesday, January 31, the COAS expressed satisfaction that most of the foot soldiers of the sect have either been crushed or escaped leaving the acclaimed leader without defense.
He assured that peace will return and the country will return to its place of honour.
Read poem below:
‘End Of The Road’
“It’s time to surrender
The deceit is over
Fake ideology preached no more
Surrender before the patient birds
Hovering above you ready to landEasy prey you are today Shekau
Your foot guards perished
Your foolish pawns escaped
Abandoned you to your follies and perils
Victorious troops celebrate
The pride of the Nation
Never again for peace to elude
Our land of honour to rise greater than before.”
The friendly warning comes on a day that the Nigerian Army said its troops destroyed Boko Haram’s tactical ground, Camp Zero, in the ongoing clearance operation to dislodge remnants of Boko Haram insurgents in Sambisa Forest.
