Terrorists disguise as women
•Cordon & search yields more weapons
The cordon and search in Baga, Borno State, has revealed some terrorists disguising as women, Chief of Defence Information, Major General Chris Olukolade, disclosed yesterday in a press release.
Olukolade said the searches are also yielding more discoveries of arms, mostly bombs hidden in various locations, especially Baga town, adding that apart from those captured in the course of fighting, many arrests of terrorists hiding in the town are being made and troops are still busy interrogating the suspects.
According to him, in furtherance of the mission to clear terrorists from all their enclaves by the military, the Nigerian Air Force has stepped up its air bombardment of identified targets in Gwoza, Bama and Sambisa forest, preparatory to other phases of the mission.
“The air strikes have been highly successful as they achieved the aims, hitting vital targets with required precision. Terrorists are now in disarray as they scamper to escape from the impact of air bombardment of their locations in the forest,” he stated.
Olukolade revealed that having successfully liberated Baga, where the terrorists have been marauding, the troops’ attention has now been focused on consolidation of the security of the area, to pave way for return of citizens.
