Nigerian Army soldiers have detained no fewer than seven Boko Haram logistical providers in Borno State. The 195 Battalion of Operation Hadin Kai’s soldiers reportedly encountered the terrorists while conducting a regular search on the outskirts of Maiduguri.

The development was corroborated by Zagazola Makama, a counterinsurgency expert and security analyst in Lake Chad, in a statement made available to news media.

According to the sources, suspects were found with significant amounts of logistics intended for the Boko Haram militants who are generating trouble in the area. The arrested suppliers also include Hadiza Ali, Kelo Abba, Mariam Aji, Kamsilum Ali, Ngubdo Modu, and Abiso Lawan.

He said, “During searching, different items including large quantities of fuel, mosquito nets, and noodles among others were recovered.

“Troops, however, became suspicious when large quantities of garri concealed in gallons and hidden beneath the vehicles were discovered.

“Upon systematic interrogation, the females confessed to being Boko Haram members operating within Muna Garage IDP Camp, Mafa and Dikwa with their fighters camp at Boboshe and Gulumba Riverline in Dikwa Local Government Area of Borno State.

“They revealed that the garri was packed in the gallons in other to beat checkpoints and also to help preserve it against rain as the garri and other items are burried in the ground at their agreed exchange points, where their fighters collect them.”

The suspects have since admitted to buying kidnap victims for their fighters based on the value of people and occasionally the number of cows possessed or the size of farms.
