The Nigerian army says it has destroyed 2,000 cartons of dried fish and smoked meat recovered from suspected Boko Haram insurgents.

Tukur Gusau, a colonel and spokesman of the 7 division of the Nigerian army, Maiduguri, supervised the public destruction of the items in the Borno state capital.

Gusau said the items were recovered by the military after different operations in parts of the state.

“The cartons of dried fish and smoked meat are believed to have been seized from innocent fishermen and businessmen,” he said.

“The smoked meat was suspected to be made from rustled cows by the insurgents, who later sell them at ridiculous amount to finance their terrorists activities.”

Gusau then called on members of the public to continue supporting security agents by reporting any suspicious movement of persons or vehicles loaded with supplies meant for Boko Haram terrorists enclaves”.

Only on Wednesday, the Nigerian air force said it destroyed Boko Haram’s power-generating solar panels in Sambisa forest, as parts of its current offensive against the sect.
