Gen. Musa said the Joint Taskforce is keen on blocking all illicit financial and logistics supplies to the Boko Haram terrorists, noting that such a move is aimed at bringing the 13-year-old war to an end.
He said, “They (Boko Haram Terrorists) have sources of funding from outside of the country and also from inside. Those from inside, we have been taking care of them and jointly with the Multinational Joint Task Force, we are also taking care of those outside.
Wondering why some residents will buy fuel from filling stations and food items from the market and decided to take it to Boko Haram terrorists in the bush, Gen Musa said, “Saboteurs are all over. People are just looking for how to make money and they don’t care whose life is being threatened. But we have made some arrests and we will continue to make arrests.
“We have been picking out their (Boko Haram Terrorists) logisticians and informants. If anyone is helping the terrorists, the person will also be considered a terrorist and will be treated as such.
The TC who revealed that over 67, 000 combatants and none -combatants Boko Haram fighters alongside their wives and children have surrendered to the Nigeria troops, advised other fighters in the bush to make haste and surrender and not to be deceived by their commanders.
He maintained that the Boko Haram terrorists commanders are making huge amount of money from their foreign financiers and would not want their continuous mass surrendering to the military.
His words, “Let the Boko Haram terrorists willing to surrender not listen to their commanders; their commanders are making brisk business keeping them there. They are making money from their foreign sponsors.
