Army Arrests Seven Foreigners Suspected To Be Members Of Boko Haram

Five Nigeriens and two Chadians are among the fleeing insurgents apprehended by the Special Forces as troops continue their pursuit of terrorists dislodged from their bases.

The seven according to the Director Defence Information, Brigadier General Christopher Olukolade were among the nine arrested at Tumbu Gini, a border town with Chad as they tried to cross the borders into Chad.

He said the man suspected to be leading the group escaped with gunshot wounds.

He added that the Defence Headquarters has observed that attempts are being made by insurgents and their collaborators to push into public domain, questionable and manipulated messages meant to misinform the public.

The Abubakar Shekau, the Boko Haram leader in a video, which is the group’s first since the emergency declaration, said the group is winning the war against the soldiers.

Mr. Shekau displayed identity cards of soldiers he claimed his group had killed in their operations. He also displayed a destroyed armoured tank he claimed his men bombed.

The group in a rare solidarity cry also sought help from foreign Islamic militants.

Mr. Shekau sought help from militants who are fighting for Islam in countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Yemen, Syria and those we can’t mention.

We are here fighting those who believe in the constitution and western education. You should all know that we are all in good health, he said.

The army spokesman however said this message is clearly a confirmation of the level of pressure which has been brought to bear on the insurgents.

He urged Nigerians to continue to be calm as there is indeed no cause for alarm as the insurgents are actually in flight, necessitating their call for help from their foreign allies.

The operation to put an end to the activities of insurgents is continuing and in line with overall plans for the nation’s security.
