The Army is being silent about the ongoing military operations due to the activities of Informants in order not to jeopardize the whole operation.

The arrest is yet to be confirmed by the Army, but a Source close to the communities disclosed that Jack Bros Yellow is the leader of one of the three groups of bandits terrorizing Shiroro, Rafi and Munya local government areas.
