The Nigerian Army has revealed that the Boko haram terrorists are now using drones and foreign fighters against them.
According to Vanguard, Brigadier General Sani Kukasheka Usman disclosed this in a statement issued to newsmen on Wednesday, November 28, 2018. The Army also thanked Nigerians for their messages of solidarity and support.
In the statment, while reviewing the operations, it reads:
Since 2015, the Nigerian Army in conjunction with sister services and other security agencies have systematically degraded the capabilities and capacity of Boko Haram terrorists and many successes were achieved.
However, in the last 2 – 3 months, we have noticed daring moves by the terrorists, increased use of drones against our defensive positions and infusion of foreign fighters in their ranks. These potent threats require us to continually review our operations.
At this point permit me to implore all of us to spare a thought for the brave men and women of the Nigerian Army who paid the supreme price for the security of Nigeria.
The Nigerian Army will continue to support the families of these brave officers and soldiers and pray that their souls rest in perfect peace. Let us also not forget the men, women and children who have been killed or affected by the atrocities of the terrorists. It is for their sake that this war against terror must be won.
