The Nigeria Army has raised alarm over the use of landmines and informants by Boko Haram.
The study of attacks on troops has identified locations where the sect gets unwavering assistance.
Informants not only harbor them in their houses and settlements, they leak soldiers’ movements to terrorists and also help to plant improvised explosive devices.
Intelligence showed that civilians in at least thirteen Local Governments Areas are undermining military operations in parts of Borno, Adamawa, and the Yobe States.
However, it was discovered that Boko Haram has created camps in several villages while making money from farming, fishing, and other economic activities.
“The sabotaging attitude of informants are so rampant in Guzamala, Abadam, Marte, Kukawa, Mobbar, Monguno and Gwoza LGAs of Borno”, a military source told PRNigeria.
“Pockets of terrorists also established hideouts in Geidam, Tarmuwa, and Yunusari LGAs in Yobe, while Mubi, Madagali, and Gombi LGAs in Adamawa also harbor active sympathizers of Boko Haram.”
According to some intelligence sources equally confirmed that Boko Haram collaborators provide information about military movements.
“It is not clear what the terrorists incentivize the locals with to be able to sabotage troops who are on a mission to liberate them from the stranglehold of the insurgents.
“The new service chiefs have lots of work to do in terms of investing more resources on intelligence gathering and encouraging governors to support the military.”
The officer advised religious, traditional leaders, and political, to rein in the people to stop jeopardizing efforts of the troops in the ongoing war.
