Nigerian Military Acquires Drones to Tackle Boko Haram [Photo]



Drones and other sophisticated equipment have been deployed in the Northeast to curtail Boko Haram’s insurgency. It was also learnt that the military intensified air strikes on Boko Haram bases in Monguno to reclaim the town, which fell to the sect’s fighters last weekend.
The acquisition of the drones is part of the  new massive military campaign to be launched soon against Boko Haram.
A source, who spoke in confidence, said most of the equipment were sourced from the Far East, including Russia and Ukraine, following lack of cooperation by some Western countries.The source said the arrival of the hardware has boosted the morale of troops.
The source said: “The military has deployed some drones and sophisticated hardware in the North-East in line with its timeline to end Boko Haram insurgency.These drones will complement ongoing air and land strikes against some bases of the sect.The simultaneous attacks on Monguno, Konduga and Maiduguri  by Boko Haram insurgents were pre-emptive steps against the military by the sect.With effective equipment, the insurgents were aware that the game is up and in annoyance, they decided to attack military installations and troops.”
The military has intensified air strikes on the insurgents’ locations in Monguno.
Another source said: “Troops will soon reclaim Monguno because the insurgents in the town have been trapped. They cannot move away from the town since troops have laid siege to all entry and exit points.You see, the insurgents also struck in Monguno, Konduga and Maiduguri to divert attention of the military from the relocation of some of their commanders from one of their strategic camps to another.”
