Troops of operation Lafiya Dole have arrested Modu Ari for supplying information to Boko Haram.

Ari was said to have been spying on the formation of the troops, and this had led to attacks on the military operatives.

 

Mohammed Yerima, army spokesperson, in a statement on Sunday, said investigations were ongoing to unravel more local informants.

 

“Troops of Operation Lafiya Dole have arrested suspected Boko Haram informant whose spying activities and that of his accomplices were responsible for the attacks on troops position by terrorists in Kamuya, Yobe State,” the statement read.

 

 “The informant who was identified as Modu Ari was apprehended by troops of 27 Task Force Brigade.

 

“On interrogation, he confessed to have revealed troops’ movement and position to his Boko Haram collaborators.

 

“Investigation is however ongoing to unravel the network of local informants whose nefarious activities have endangered troops on clearance operations around the fringes of Timbuktu Triangle.

 

 “The unfortunate sabotage of troops movement by Ari and his accomplices made it possible for the terrorists to attack the rear element of troops on patrol.

 

“Though the attack was swiftly repelled by troops from the Tactical Headquarters of 27 Task Force Brigade and Army Super Camp 3 Buratai, own troops suffered some casualties.

 

“In spite of the setback, the Chief of Army Staff has encouraged troops of Operation Tura Takaibango to keep their fighting spirit up and to remain dedicated in the effort to flush out the remnants of the terrorists as quickly as possible.

 

“He charged them not to relent even in the face of gross unpatriotic acts of some locals who are snitching on their movements and positions.”

He said citizens are advised to avail the troops of credible and timely information that will help them flush out the insurgents.
