Troops of 22 Brigade Garrison and elements of 3 Battalion that went out on long range fighting patrol to Gima village in Ngala Local Government Area of Borno state on Monday made a startling discovery: Boko Haram terrorists now have uniforms as new means of identification.
“The patrol came in contact with some elements of the Boko Haram that started escaping in disarray on sighting the team”, said spokesman Colonel Sani Usman.
“However, they were able to apprehend two terrorists in their new styled uniform of green colour and use of ropes on their legs and necks. This is a new development in the ongoing clearance operations of the remnants of the Boko Haram terrorists in the north east.
“In addition, the patrol team recovered 1 Isuzu Canter lorry which found concealed with grasses, 5 motorcycles and 2 bags of guniea corn. Other items recovered include 3 Dane guns, a Solar panel, 3 bows and arrows.
“The arrested terrorists are currently being interrogated to further assist in the clearance operations”, Usman added.
