The Nigerian Army yesterday said troops on Operation Lafiya Dole recovered a large cache of arms and ammunition at Garsum in Borno State at the weekend.

A statement from army spokesman, Colonel Sani Usman, said following a tip-off, troops on clearance patrol at Borgozo-Alargano discovered the arms concealed by Boko Haram militants.

“The patrol team also cleared remnants of Boko Haram terrorists that were dislodged from Alagarno forest hibernating at Kadari, Camp Abu Fatima and Gursum. The troops discovered a large cache of arms and ammunition that include 36 boxes of .51mm calibre, 5 x 20 Lyra beefcake mixture of 7.62mm (NATO) ammunition, large quantity of 7.62mm (Special) ammunition and one 81mm mortar tube,” he added.

Usman also said the troops also recovered one Toyota Hilux, one power generator and several motorcycles.

He appealed to the people of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe States to continue to provide useful information in order to facilitate complete routing of remnants of Boko Haram insurgents hiding in their localities.
