Be Wary Of Fleeing Terrorists, Military Warns
The Multinational Joint Task Force, MNJTF, engaged in clearance operations against Boko Haram terrorists in the North east has warned citizens especially those living in the insurgency ridden region to be security conscious as some remnants of the insurgents fleeing from the troops are relocating to remote settlements along the borders of neighbouring countries.
The fleeing insurgents are said to be disguising as normal civilians.
This was made known in a statement by Muhammad Dole, a colonel and the Chief Military Public Information Officer of the Multinational Joint Task Force Headquarters, in N’Djamena, Chad.
Dole added that the Commander of the MNJTF, Lamidi Adeosun, also wants the law abiding and good citizens residing along the borders to always report the arrival of new persons or settlers in their domains, as well as unusual movement of persons to the nearest security agencies.
Dole assured that troops have successfully linked up and are currently consolidating their defences in the recaptured town of Damasak, Borno State, and stabilising the general area.
The town of Damask was recently captured from insurgents by troops of Sector 4 of the MNJTF.
