The Commander, MNJTF, Major General Lamidi Adeosun, has appealed to law abiding citizens residing along the borders in the North-East region to be security conscious and report the arrival of new persons and settlers as well as unusual movement of persons to the nearest security agencies as the onslaught against the terrorists continues till they are all smoked out of their hiding places.
This was contained in a statement issued by Colonel Muhammad Dole, Chief Military Public Information Officer, Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) Headquarters, N’Djamena, Chad.
“Sequel to the capture and subsequent occupation of Damasak town and surrounding villages by Sector 4 of the MNJTF, troops of Operation Lafiya Dole (Nigeria) have successfully linked up and are currently consolidating their defences in the cleared town and stabilising the general area.
“Despite this high valued achievement, remnants of Boko Haram Terrorists fleeing the general area of operation are said to be relocating to remote settlements along the borders of the MNJTF member countries, mostly disguising as normal civilians,” the statement read.
