The director of defence information, major general Chris Olukolade on Tuesday said that the military had captured Alagarno town in Borno state and with it they were able to seize a lot of arms and ammunition.
According to Olukolade ‘ items captured from the terrorists included armoured vehicles, several arms and ammunition of various sizes and calibres, power generating set , grenades and improvised explosive devices,IEDs.
He also said they have Condon the town and they are searching the area to ensure that they mop up the town to make the area conducive for the residents.
He also said that Alagarno was used as an escape route into other communities and into other neighbouring countries. Alagarno is regarded by locals as the major haven for the Boko Haram group in the notorious Sambisa forest.
It is expected that with the capture of Kagarno town, the last vestiges of Boko Haram terrorist group would have been eliminated.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
