10 December 2012, 07:23

Damaturu - The Joint Task Force (JTF) in Yobe on Sunday recovered 11 rifles in Kandahar Area of Damaturu, two weeks after 5 000 rounds of ammunition were discovered in the area.

This is contained in a statement issued by the JTF spokesmen, Lt. Eli Lazarus, in Damaturu.

He said the taskforce recovered nine Fabric Nationale and two riot gun rifles in Kandahar.

"The JTF in a cordon and search operation in Kandahar area of Damaturu recovered nine Fabric Nationale (FB) and two riot guns, making a total number of 11 riffles recovered," he said.

The taskforce appealed to members of the public to report any suspicious persons, movements and objects in their areas for prompt response.

Eli assured that any information supplied to the JTF, would be treated with utmost confidentiality.

"We appreciate every piece of information that will assist the JTF in its operation toward restoring peace and security across the state."

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that business activities were gradually picking up in Damaturu as residents who fled had made a u-turn following the improved security situation in the state.
