Adegoke said that the infighting by the Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorist groups, as well as effects of MNJTF and other national op­erations bombardment, especially effects of the air strikes, had trig­gered their movement.

He disclosed that there had been continuous movements of large bodies of people from the Sambisa forests to the Lake Chad basin within the last one month. “In a joint coordinated operations between Sectors 3 and 4 of the MNJTF in the Kamadougu Yobe River general area, along the Nige­ria/Niger common border areas, more than 900 people, made up of women, children and elderly people suspected to be families and collaborators of the insur­gents, have been arrested.

“Collaboration with national authorities and subsequent profil­ing and handing over is ongoing.

“Also, troops of Sector 4 con­ducted a night patrol along Nga­gam – Djalori Axis where they rescued three women alongside their four children who were fleeing from the fighting between the Boko Haram and ISWAP from Sambisa forest.

“In a related encouraging de­velopment, on March 8, troops of Sector 3 Nigeria deployed at Damasak, intercepted 70 terror­ists’ family members comprising 43 women and 30 children.

“They are currently receiving medical attention and profiling,” he said. Adegoke explained that the emerging situation by the MNJTF troops of Sector 3 Nigeria started on March 5.

He said this followed the arrest of two suspected Boko Haram terrorists’ logistics suppliers and their collaborators Muhammed Sabo and Sarki Danladi, while trying to exit Munguno town to the Tumbuns to link up with the terrorists.

Adegoke said that the items re­covered from the suspects includ­ed two blankets, two fishermen identity cards, three wristwatches, two access passes, which were is­sued by the terrorists, 20 empty sack bags, some personal clothing.
