This was revealed to newsmen by the Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Col. Sani Usman.

Usman said “Following a tip off by well-meaning citizens, troops of 3 Division yesterday (Thursday) swooped on and dismantled a Boko Haram fuel dump located at Ladu Dumbawa ward, Guzamala Local Government Area of Borno State.

“It will be recalled that suspected Boko Haram terrorists had abducted seven persons in Gajabere and took them to the same location. Those kidnapped were three local ward heads called “Lawani” and their respective deputies, as well as the Chief Imam of the town.

“However, through sheer guts and bravery, three of them escaped and reported the matter to the security agents. This led to the rescue of the rest and discovery of the well-concealed terrorists’ fuel depot which was also destroyed by the troops.

“The troops have further blocked the terrorists’ supply route that led to Babangida in Tarmuwa Local Government Area of Yobe State where they mostly get the supplies.”
