Army Captures Boko-Haram Leaders, Recovers Weapons In Borno, Yobe by Simulacrum(m): 9:25pm On Jun 25, 2013
The Federal Government troops deployed to Yobe and Borno have captured some notorious leaders of the terrorist group, Boko Haram, and recovered various weapons. The Director of Defence
Information, Brigadier General
Chris Olukolade disclosed this in
a statement issued in Abuja on
Tuesday. In the statement, Mr Olukolade
gave the report of a nine-
member Defence Headquarters
Operational Assessment Team,
sent by the Chief of Defence
Staff, Admiral Ola Ibrahim, to the two states. He said the team visited troop
locations in various parts of
Borno and Yobe. “The commanding officer
narrated the conduct of the
operation to rid the (Sambisa)
forest of the insurgents who had
made the location their
sanctuary,” he said. The spokesman quoted the
commanding officer as saying
that some notorious leaders of
the terrorists had been captured
while some materials recovered
in their camp had provided useful intelligence for
subsequent operations. He did
not name the captured Boko
Haram leaders. “The team was shown the
various weapons, including
rockets and locally fabricated
weapon accessories captured in
the forest,” he said. He said items recovered
included a large number of
Improvised Explosive Devices-
making materials, laptops,
mobile communication
equipment used for shooting and posting online videos, as
well as locally made rockets and
rocket launchers. “Also, seized vehicles of
different brands were shown to
the team. “Several vehicles destroyed by
the terrorists as well as their
tailoring equipment apparently
used in producing fake uniforms
were also shown to the team,’’
he said. He said the commanding officer
told the team that the unit
suffered casualties in men and
equipment. The defence spokesperson said
troops were currently engaged
in night and day patrols of the
area to dominate the forest and
apprehend any terrorist who
might be lurking around. He said the Chief of Defence Staff
expressed satisfaction with the
high level of successes so far
recorded in the operation.
