Abuja - The Joint Task Force (JTF) in Borno State has discovered a mass grave with remains of suspected Boko Haram members.
Among those were the remains of Bulabulin Nganaram, alleged leader of the sect in the region, who was on the wanted list of the JTF with a N10 million bounty.
An assortment of weapons was also discovered in the grave.
In a statement JTF spokesman, Lt Col. Sagir Musa, said the discovery followed the dislodgment of the sect from their main enclaves of Nganaram, Aljajeri and Faluja within Maiduguri metropolis.
The dislodgement was part of the taskforce's Operation Restore Order aimed at driving out members of Boko Haram.
“Decomposing corpses of those killed by the terrorists were also found in soak-away and mass graves of terrorists killed and taken away by them.
"The troops also discovered vast network mouse-holes linking compounds and underground tunnels as well as bunkers under houses," Musa said.
Amir was held responsible for the killing of a teacher and three students of Sanda Karami Secondary School at Ruwan Zafi in Maiduguri.
Musa said troops were still searching the area for more weapons, ammunition and mass graves.
He appealed for more support and information from the members of the public on the activities of Boko Haram.
"The fight against the terrorist group cannot be left to security agencies alone," said Musa.
