Nigerian Army has disclosed that they found in Boko Haram insurgents’ camp, ammunitions, local charms, condoms and sex-enhancing drugs saying they turned their camps into sex enclaves.
“When the Nigerian military captured their bases and training camps, they never found Qur’an or other Islamic books, what were mostly found were ammunitions, local charms, condoms and all sort of drugs including sex enhancing ones in their enclaves,” said the Army spokesman Col. S. K. Usman in statement on Tuesday.
Usman further revealed that some membres of the sects arrested in the past could not read the Qur’an though they claimed to want to establish an Islamic caliphate.
He said “You will recall that sometimes ago we reported that ironically most of the Boko Haram terrorists captured by Nigerian military cannot read the Holy Qur’an, some of them cannot even recite the first chapter- Suratuh Al-Fatiha and yet they claimed they wanted to establish an ‘Islamic State’.”
In related development, Usman revealed on Wednesday that the troops were making substantial progress within the fringes of Sambisa forests, along axis of advance from Bitta to Tokumbere in Borno state.
