Persons linked with Boko Haram to be released – Military

-

- Advertisment -

The military has confirmed that more persons detained for alleged links with Boko Haram insurgents will be released after being cleared by its joint intelligence cell.

Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Usman, who gave the confirmation, said the screening of detained suspects conducted jointly by intelligence officers from the Army and other sister agencies, would be continuous and carried out simultaneously with the offensive operation.

Usman said the Army in collaboration with other security agencies would continue to follow the rules of engagement in the operation aimed at liberating areas held by the insurgents.

On the ongoing offensive against the insurgents, Usman said troops were consolidating on the recent gains as areas around Sambisa were being closed down by troops.

Meanwhile, the Centre for Crisis Communication, a Non-governmental Organisation (NGO), has commended security agencies for adopting the current measures, in their bid to end terrorism in the region.
