Army Destroys Cartons Of Fish, Meat Snatched By B’Haram
The interception and destruction of the foods, according to military authorities yesterday in Maiduguri, have crippled the logistic channels of Boko Haram activities in the state. “The destroyed food items were sold out by terrorists to finance their insurgency activities,” the spokesman of the Division, Col. Tukur Gusau, said yesterday at the Maiduguri destruction site.
Gusau added:” We are here this morning to witness the burning of food items we recovered from Boko Haram terrorists. The food items include some cartons of dried fish, approximately 2, 000 cartons and some bags of smoked beef, which is suspected to be from rustled cattle. “What we are doing today (yesterday) is to burn them, so that we can send a message to the adversaries.
The message to them is that they have to change their ways. They have to retract their steps. They must embrace peace. Otherwise, we will not stop until we cripple all their logistic channels and these. “We call on the people to continue to give us the information we need, so that insurgency will come to an end within the shortest possible time.”
