Troops of 3 Division of Nigerian Army have  dismantled a Boko Haram fuel dump located at Ladu Dumbawa ward, Guzamala Local Government Area of Borno State, Colonel Sani Usman, spokesperson of the Army said in a statement released on Thursday.

According to Usman the troops were led to the depot  by three out of the seven persons who have been kidnapped earlier from Gabajere village and taken to the same location by some members of Boko Haram.

Usman said:  “It would be recalled that suspected Boko Haram terrorists had abducted seven persons in Gajabere and took them to the same location.

“Those kidnapped were three  local wards heads called “Lawani” and their respective deputies, as well as the Chief Imam of the town. However, through sheer guts and bravery, 3 of them escaped and reported the matter to the security which led to the rescue of the rest and discovery of the well concealed terrorists fuel depot which was also destroyed by troops”.

In the same vein, the spokesman also informed that  troops have further blocked the terrorists supply route that led to Babangida in Tarmuwa Local Government Area of Yobe State where they mostly get the supplies while they are intensifying efforts to identify and neutralise all Boko Haram logistic bases to further constrict the terrorists and hasten their total defeat.

He further appealed to citizens  to furnish the military and security agencies with information on all known terrorists’ location, routes, suppliers of fuel, food, clothing and any good or service to the terrorists.
