BHT Terrorists fleeing Damasak to border settlements- MNJTF alerts.


Following increased intensity of the military’s attack on remnants of Boko Haram in the northeast and complete recapture of Damasak town in Borno, the Multi-national Joint Task Force has alerted border communities to beware of fleeing terrorists who may want to hide in the towns.


A statement in the regard signed by Colonel Mohammed Dole, spokesman of MNJTF said, “ Sequel to the capture and subsequent occupation of Damasak town and surrounding villages by Sector 4, Multi-Nnational Joint Task Force, soldiers of Operation Lafiya Dole (Nigeria) have successfully linked up and are currently consolidating their defences in the cleared town and stabilizing 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 Commander, MNJTF, Major General Lamidi Adeosun wishes to appeal once again to the law abiding and good citizens residing along the borders to be security conscious and report arrival of new persons/settlers as well as unusual movement of persons to the nearest security agencies.


“The onslaught against the terrorists continues till they are all smoked out of their hiding places. This is a task that would be achieved with the continued support of all.”
