Military Uncover Boko Haram Food Storage


The Joint Military Task Force deployed to war against the Boko Haram terrorist group this Sunday disclosed to Journalists and Nigerians in general that they are gaining ground in the fight, having discovered a storage facility where the terrorists store their food.

Speaking to newsmen, the Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Sani Usman, stated that the storage contained large quantity of foodstuff when his men uncovered the area.

 Mr Sani Usman went further to say that the military troops discovered that the terrorists were mounting sentries on various tree tops to enable them gather intelligence on the advancement of troops.
This is coming shortly after the British government has pledged their relentless support for the President Buhari’s led administration in the war against Boko Haram and every sort of terrorism in Nigeria.

Bama Local Government Area has been in the news for a while now, though hardly reported but we are glad at the pace the Nigeria military is crushing them.

Below is the full statement Mr Sani Usman made available to Premium Times

“On Saturday 16th April 2016, troops of 7 Division Strike Group Team B and 22 Task Force Brigade conducted a simultaneous dawn raid on suspected Boko Haram terrorists hideouts at Biggoro, Warpaya and Aura, North of Kumshe in Bama Local Government Area.

“The essence of the operation was to stop the reported criminal activities of remnants of Boko Haram terrorists hiding in the three villages. This became necessary as previous efforts were futile. The suspected terrorists kept coming in search for food, water and shelter.

“The surprised dawn attack yielded positive result as the troops discovered well concealed observation posts on trees in the villages constructed by the terrorists to give them early warning of troops movement or approach.

 “In addition the troops found out that the observation posts though tree tops, were constructed in such a manner with chairs and ropes to pull up foods and other needs by the sentry without necessarily coming down the trees.
