The Task Force as for support from the public.
The Joint Task Force (JTF) in Yobe said it arrested four suspects, and recovered arms and ammunition in Wednesday’s raid of suspected terrorists’ camp in Majari Village in Gujba Local Government Area.
This is contained in a statement by Lazarus Eli, the JTF spokesman, in Damaturu on Thursday.
Mr. Eli said: “at about 23hrs on Wednesday, men of the Joint Task Force raided the suspected terrorist camp in Majari village close to Buni Yadi, the headquarters of Gujba Local Government Area.”
He said four suspected terrorists were arrested in the camp with one Isuzu pick up van, 10 motorcycles, bomb making materials and 200 rounds of ammunition.
Other items recovered include one police anti-riot gun, one pistol, one Dane gun, 43 tear gas canisters, two police uniforms, one lap top and one desk top computer.
He said the JTF also recovered two generating sets, 13 military kit pads, four police berets, police helmet and boots, medical box with assorted drugs, several assorted clothing, cooking pots and food items.
Mr. Eli said the pickup van was covered with a specially prepared mud to avoid spotting it from a distance while the exhaust was compressed not to make loud noise.
He assured that the JTF would overcome the activities of terrorists in the state.
The spokesman appealed to members of the public to cooperate with security operatives in the state by providing useful information on suspicious movements in their areas.
