Following a tip off by well meaning citizens, troops of 3 Division
yesterday swooped over and dismantled a Boko Haram fuel dump located at
Ladu Dumbawa ward, Guzamala Local Government Area of Borno State.
It would be recalled that suspected Boko Haram terrorists had abducted 7
persons in Gajabere and took them to the same location.
Those kidnapped were 3 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.
The 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.
Troops are intensifying efforts to identify and neutralise all Boko
Haram logistic bases to further constrict the terrorists and hasten
their total defeat. Citizens are please requested to furnish the
military and security agencies with information on all known terrorsists
location, routes, suppliers of fuel, food, clothing and any good or
service to the terrorists.
Thank you for your usual cooperation.
