As the Nigerian troops continue to sustain their offensives against terrorists in North-Eastern Nigeria, more arrests have been made.
Some of the recent arrest include professional cameramen for the terrorist group who are experts in photo, video recording and filming of their attacks on communities and atrocities against innocent citizens.
The terrorists were nabbed during patrols, surveillance and raid operations to track fleeing terrorists in communities around Adamawa State
Confirming the development, the Director Defence Information, Major General Chris Olukolade said four of those nabbed as they tried to escape in an SUV jeep with digital camera and weapons were taken into custody.
He added that they are helping in ongoing investigation in one of the barracks.
In another development, the Nigerian troops have continued to rain devastating blows on their (terrorists’) hideouts and escape routes.
The troops in Konduga, Borno State destroyed a vehicle laden with Improvised Explosive Device (IED) meant for suicide bombing operation by the terrorists.
This is the latest incident in the series of recent attempts being made by terrorists to make incursions into the town and other surrounding communities.
PRNigeria gathered that while undisclosed number of terrorists were killed, no personnel or civilian was affected in today’s incident.
A top military source urges residents to always report suspicious movements as well as strange people to appropriate authority for investigation and appropriate actions.
He said: “What we need from Nigerians is their supports, their encouragements and prayers to enable us overcome this insanity from unrepentant terrorists!”
