Multi-National Joint Task Force, MNJTF, has foiled plan by a band of terrorists who relocated to Niger Republic to rearm and attack some border villages in Nigeria.
A band of terrorists were said to be remobilizing and arming insurgents with the aim of carrying out fresh terrorists attacks on some Nigerian communities.
The Defence Headquarters stated in a statement signed by Brigadier General Chris Olukolade that the leader of the group who had fled Nigeria when the terrorist camps were sacked was reportedly recruiting fresh hands and training them for renewed terrorist activities in Nigeria.
“The intention of the group is to focus its attacks on some towns around the Nigeria-Niger Republic border.”
“Intelligence operatives of the Multi-National Joint Task Force, MNJTF, had been on the trail of the leader until he was eventually arrested in Karanga, Niger Republic on Saturday with the cooperation of Nigerien forces”.
“His other accomplices were later picked up in other villages in Nigeria.They are currently being interrogated” and helping to track others.
