The relentless effort of Special Troops in Borno state yesterday paid off, as a detachment apprehended some Boko Haram members who were going around in search of food.

Director of Information, Defense Headquarters, Brigadier General Chris Olukolade, made this know in a chat with newsmen.

He said a group of terrorists moving from village to village in search of large quantity of food were nabbed following a tip off from civilians.

The spokesman said the intensive cordon and search operation being conducted by the troops of the Special Forces in Borno State have received a major civilian cooperation in communities close to locations being focused in the operation.


 
The group which was moving around in a Toyota Land Cruiser jeep were arrested at Daban Masara with weapons including AK 47 rifle, single barrel shotgun, double hand shotgun and various kinds of ammunition.

He further stated that in other locations, a total of 56 identified insurgents were apprehended with the help of military police dogs. Items recovered from the arrested insurgents include, 7 packs of IEDs, 2 rocket-propelled gun chargers, a rifle magazine, 2 machetes, bomb detonators, camouflage and other military uniforms as well as medicines, charms, 7 vehicles including a jeep and 8 tricycles.
