The Nigerian military has recorded another milestone in the fight to end Boko Haram terrorism in the North-East with the interception of a large cache of fuel and other logistics for the terrorists in Maiduguri, Borno State.

In a statement released Thursday, October 1, 2015, by Acting Director Army Public Relations, Col. Sani Usman, the Army said a wanted Boko Haram supplier was also arrested.

The statement said: “Troops yesterday afternoon, following a tip-off by well meaning citizens, discovered and raided yet another Boko Haram fuel dump at Abbaganaram in Maiduguri city, Borno State.

“During the operation, one Musa Abba was arrested and the following items were discovered and confiscated: 11 drums of AGO (diesel), 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 include 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 terrorist camps in Sambisa forest.

“Over time we have been exhorting the public, especially the residents of the northeastern part of the country, which has been mostly affected by the acts of Boko Haram terrorists, to cooperate fully with the military and the security agencies.

“It is gratifying to note that the call is being heeded 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 assist in preventing Boko Haram terrorists from carrying out their nefarious acts against the society.”
