Boko Haram terrorists have devised a new means of identification, the Nigerian Army said this morning. Army Spokesman, Col. Sani Kukasheka Usman, said troops uncovered the new strategy yesterday.

He said in a statement: “Troops of 22 Brigade Garrison and elements of 3 Battalion that went out on long range fighting patrol yesterday, Monday 25th April 2016, to Gima village in Ngala Local Government Area made a startling discovery; Boko Haram terrorists now have new means of identification.

“The patrol came in contact with some elements of the Boko Haram that started escaping in disarray on sighting the team.

“However, they were able to apprehend two terrorists in their new styled uniform of green colour and use of ropes on their legs and necks. This is a new development in the ongoing clearance operations of the remnants of the Boko Haram terrorists in the North East.

“In addition, the patrol team recovered 1 Isuzu Canter lorry which found concealed with grasses, 5 motorcycles and 2 bags of guinea corn. Other items recovered include 3 Dane guns, a Solar panel, 3 bows and arrows.

“The arrested terrorists are currently being interrogated to further assist in the clearance operations.”
