JTF begins massive door-to-door search in Maiduguri

The Joint Task Force (JTF) on Operation Restore Order (ORO) said that it has begun search for suspected Boko Haram members in Maiduguri.

“The JTF is on massive cordon and search operation in targeted areas in Maiduguri,” Sagir Musa, JTF spokesman, said in a statement in Maiduguri on Sunday.

“It is intended to arrest suspected Boko Haram terrorists, mop up illegal arms and ammunitions and Improvised Explosive Devise (IEDs),’’ Mr. Musa said.

Mr. Musa warned that individuals found harbouring suspected terrorists, arms, ammunitions and IEDs would be dealt with appropriately.

“The JTF reiterates that any structure found to be harbouring terrorists; arms, ammunitions and IEDs will be dealt with appropriately.

“The massive presence of troops on the river line bridge and other areas is a deliberate attempt to checkmate terrorists’ activities in the affected areas.”
