IMG-20160321-WA0018The 29 Task Force Brigade troops have also been busy  conducting clearing operations on the remnants of Boko Haram terrorists in their area of operations with remarkable success.
Within the last two days the units under the Brigade cleared the remnants of Boko Haram terrorists hibernating in the following areas;   Abukarti, Baradili, Borgozo, Gaijaribul Abukar, kolomi, Marguba, Umarumi and Yasori 1 and 2.

The gallant troops also recovered several items including 1 single barrel gun, motorcycles, drums and bags of millet and  dead cattle that ran into Improvised Explosive Device (IED) buried by the Boko Haram terrorists.

Similarly, the troops detonated an IED in one of the buildings at Yasori 1. It was equally discovered that prior to the clearance, the terrorists have also been frequenting Borgozo general area which  they used as harbour and staging area when conducting their nefarious activities.

  1. I have a hunch that as the battle in the Middle East against ISIL gains momentum and the political structures in Libya are slowly being established, these terrorists will look for juicy alternative sources to ply their terror. Again, Nigeria is easily the one choice they would be attracted to in a big way. It’s not going to be Mali or Niger or Chad, for those are their traditional recruiting grounds. It would be Nigeria or yet to be tested countries such as Burkina Faso, Cote D’Ivoire, Ghana, Togo or Benin Republic. If the Sambisa forest and other areas yet to be liberated within the Borno, Yobe, Adamawa axis are quickly cleared out, stabilised, and secured SOON then it would be extremely difficult for Boko Haram to stage a big come back supported by ISIS or other friendly terrorist organizations. I am of the opinion that efforts should be doubled to achieve this target that would decisively block off every path they could possibly hope to adapt in making a return. Those border area village heads who compromise our security by allowing terrorists slip men and material into Nigeria at night must be monitored and promptly checkmated. They have been a major problem in this struggle. Then we can concentrate on those within…
