The Nigerian Army, on Tuesday, said that the Boko Haram terrorists now have new uniforms.
According to a statement issued by spokesman for the Army, Colonel Sani Usman, the startling discovery was made by troops of the 22 Brigade Garrison and elements of Three Battalion that went out on Monday on a long range fighting patrol to Gima village in Ngala Local Government Area.
The statement revealed that two terrorists who were apprehended wore the new styled uniform of green colour and had ropes on their legs and necks.
Colonel Usman stated that the patrol team recovered one Isuzu Canter lorry which was found concealed with grasses, five motorcycles, two bags of guinea corn, three Dane guns, a Solar panel, three bows and arrows.
The statement read: “The patrol came in contact with some elements of the Boko Haram that started escaping in disarray on sighting the team.
