Abuja - Troops of the 22 Brigade have arrested three women and two children for allegedly supplying the Boko Haram with logistics in the Borno State.

The five were intercepted at Ajiri and Antul villages, South East of Dikwa along Dikwa-Gulumbagana Rroad in Borno State.

Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, said the suspects were arrested after tips from some whistleblowers.

"Following reports by some  good citizens about Boko Haram terrorists activities and on hearing of very loud  explosions near Dikwa troops of 22 Brigade embarked on a  patrol to Ajiri and Antul villages, South East  of Dikwa along  Dikwa-Gulumbagana road," Usman said.

The Army spokesman said the patrol team made contact with Boko Haram logistics elements who specialised in using the two villages as bases for food storage and other logistics before moving them to Bama and then to Sambisa forest.

Usman said the under aged male children were dressed in new Boko Haram uniforms earlier reported.

"The troops recovered 1 truck, two cars painted in mud, four bicycles and three power generating sets as well as 55 bags of corn," Usman said.
