‘Boko Haram fighters acquire new uniforms’

The Nigerian Army on Monday said fighters of the extremist Boko Haram sect had acquired new sets of uniforms.

A statement by the spokesperson for the Army, Sani Usman, said, “Troops of 22 Brigade Garrison and elements of 3 Battalion  that went out on long range fighting patrol yesterday, Monday 25th April 2016, to Gima village   in Ngala Local Government Area made a startling discovery; Boko Haram terrorists now have 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.

“However, they were able to apprehend 2 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.”
