Following a tip-off by well-meaning citizens, troops yesterday discovered and raided yet another Boko Haram fuel dump at Abbaganaram in Maiduguri city, Borno State.

The Director, Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, said during the operation, one person, Musa Abba, was arrested and the following items were discovered and confiscated: 11 drums of AGO, one empty drum, 192 of 25 litre-jerry cans, (out of which 70 were loaded with AGO, PMS and DPK), a Toyota bus and one Peugeot car. Others were a motorcycle and an air conditioner.

The fuel depot was used to stockpile petroleum, oil and lubricants by Boko Haram terrorists and their equally heartless collaborators for onward movement to the terrorists camps in Sambisa forest.

“Over time, we have been exhorting the public especially the residence of the north-eastern part of the country which has been mostly affected by the acts of the Boko Haram terrorists to co-operate fully with the military and the security agencies.

“It is gratifying to note that such call is being heeded to by overwhelming majority of people as exemplified by the courageous and patriotic efforts of the good citizens that exposed this fuel dump in their midst. It is important that people should see the fight against the security menace of Boko Haram terrorism as collective responsibility.


“Therefore the public are kindly requested to be more vigilant and assist with useful information that would help in preventing Boko Haram terrorists from carrying out their nefarious acts against the society,” Colonel Usman, said.
