Army Condemns Use Of Fake Military
Camouflage By Boko Haram Members
The Nigerian Army on Friday in Abuja decried
the rate at which the Boko Haram insurgents
have been using fake military camouflage to
attack civilians.
Maj.-Gen. Mobolaji Koleoso, the Chief of Civil
Military Affairs of the Nigerian Army, said this
while briefing newsmen on the security
situation in the country.
He said the Army had observed with dismay
the illegal possession and abuse of military
camouflage by the Boko Haram insurgents.
``This trend is indeed worrisome, hence the
need to enlighten the public to be cautious
and report suspicious persons using illegal
camouflage, to relevant security agencies.
``A recent exchange of gun fire with the
insurgents in the North Eastern part of the
country which resulted in a large number of
causalities on their side showed that the
insurgents were dressed in fake military
``For the unsuspecting populace, these
insurgents would have been misconstrued as
soldiers of the Nigerian Army,’’ he added.
Koleoso explained that the army had been
erroneously accused of heinous crimes on
innocent citizens, ``not knowing that the
Boko Haram insurgents have been the
perpetrators of this dastardly act.’’
On the Daura attack in Katsina State, Koleoso
said that the 35 Battalion of the Nigerian
Army received a distress call at about 10 p.m.
on Thursday, May 17 and troops moved into
Daura to take charge of the situation.
He said that in the ensuing firefight, two
soldiers were killed and an officer was shot
and wounded.
According to Koleoso him, two Boko Haram
terrorist were killed, while three escaped with
their vehicle but had an accident and died.
``Some quantities of Improvised Explosive
Devices (IEDs) were recovered, while the two
Golf cars used by the terrorists, 10 AK47 riffles
and a large quantity of ammunition were
Koeloso said that some of the terrorists
escaped with gun shots wounds and
appealed to the public to report to the
nearest security agency any person with
bullet wounds.
He warned hospitals and clinics not to treat
cases of gunshot wounds without reporting
such cases to security agencies.
Koleoso also warned that anybody who hides
any terrorist would put himself or herself in
dangers, ``as they will be acting against the
public and national interest’’.
He gave assurance that the army and other
security agencies were determined and
committed to defeating terrorists and other
criminal elements in the country.
