Boko-Haram: Army Destroys Food Seized From Insurgents

coasThe Nigerian Army on Friday destroyed 2,000 cartons of dried fish and smoked meat impounded from suspected Boko Haram insurgents, Col. Tukur Gusau, spokesman for the 7 Division of the Nigerian Army, Maiduguri, has said.

Gusau, who supervised the public destruction of the items in Maiduguri, said they were impounded by the military after different operations in parts of the state.
“The cartons of dried fish and smoked meat are believed to have been seized from innocent fishermen and businessmen.

“The smoked meat was suspected to be made from rustled cows by the insurgents, who later sell them for ridiculous amount to finance their terrorist activities,” he said.

Gusau called on the public to continue supporting security agents by reporting any suspicious movement of persons or vehicles loaded with supplies meant for Boko Haram terrorists’ enclaves.
