Abuja - Suspected Boko Haram members have killed four
members of a vigilantes group and abducted four women after attacking Kutuva village
in Borno State.
This has overshadowed a breakthrough whereby soldiers
rescued by the terrorists from Batha village.
Meanwhile, a team of local vigilante in Damboa led by Sarkin
Yaki Ali Gwoza intercepted some people along Njaba road, south of Damboa town
while on patrol.
Army spokesperson, Sani Kukasheka Usman, said they confessed
that they were Boko Haram terrorists group members that were compelled to join
the insurgency against their will and that they were on their way to Damboa to surrender
to the military.

“They attributed their decision to give up their nefarious
activities because continued military onslaught and that life has become hard
and unbearable for the terrorists generally,” Usman said.
The Army spokesman said a combined patrol team of 7 Division
Garrison, 101 Special Forces Battalion and three Civilian JTF, while on
clearance patrol, intercepted a vehicle suspected to be used by suppliers of
spare parts and improvised explosives
making devices to Boko Haram terrorists along Kayamla general area.
“The suspected suppliers abandoned the vehicle and fled into
the bush on sighting the patrol team.
The vehicle and its contents have been recovered to nearby military
location,” Usman said.
