JTF Dogs Arrest 56 More Boko Haram Insurgents In Borno
The defence headquarters in Abuja today declared that the newly deployed military police dogs have facilitated the arrest of 56 more Boko Haram insurgents in the on-going war against the islamist sect in north east part of the country.
The defence director of information, Brig Gen Chris Olukolade who disclosed this in a statement released today also said that “the intensive cordon and search operation being conducted by the troops of the Special Forces received a major boost from civilian cooperation in communities close to locations being focused in the operation yesterday. A group of terrorists moving from village to village in search of large quantity of food were tracked and apprehended following a tip off from civilians. The group which was moving around in a Toyota Land Cruiser Jeep with registration number Borno XA 428 ADM which is suspected to have been stolen was eventually arrested at Daban Masara with weapons such as AK 47 rifle, single barrel shotgun, double hand shotgun and various calibres of ammunition.”
He added 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 equipment, charms, 7 vehicles including a Jeep and 8 tri-cycles. It is believed that some stranded terrorists are keen on establishing new camps. They are being trailed accordingly. There were also a few encounters with some insurgents in forest locations apart from the identified and destroyed camps.”
