Nigeria : Army offers free passage to surrounding Boko Haram militants.
The Acting Brigade Commander, Colonel Ibrahim Yusuf, told newsmen in Maiduguri that the Army would appreciate a bloodless end to the lingering insurgence in the country.
He advised members of the sect who have intention of opting out to notify the nearest village head or military outpost.
The Commander's pronouncement followed revelations by a suspected member of the sect now under their custody, who told newsmen that many of them have intension to leave, but that they were afraid lest they be traced and killed.
The twenty-two year old suspect, whose name is being withheld, however disclosed that it would be extremely difficult for any member of the sect to renounce his membership and surrender if government does not guarantee them security.
He also denied the rumour that people were being initiated into the group via taking oath, blood, or drugs.
