Nigerian military on Tuesday 8th September reported intercepting and impounding vehicles transporting drugs and fuel to the Boko Haram militants in Yobe State of Nigeria. Likewise, they were able to arrest some kingpins and foot soldiers purported to be suppliers of fuel, hard drugs and stimulants for the militants.
Following the lack of fuel for the Boko Haram, the militants have in turn resulted to ancient war techniques of using horses to conduct their attacks especially in the villages.
The use of horses by the terrorists has prompted the ban of uses of horses in the northeastern region of Nigeria.
Nigeria’s military on 8th September announced intercepting and impounding a vehicle believed to transport fuel and drugs to the Boko Haram militants in Yobe State in Nigeria.
The vehicle that was seized between the towns of Depchi and Geidam and several kingpins and foot soldiers arrested in the seizure who are purportedly hard drugs, stimulants and fuel suppliers for the Islamic State allied Boko Haram.
The drugs recovered are a clear indicator of the delusion suffered by the Boko Haram in their interpretation of Islam. Islam doesn’t condone the use drugs unless for medicinal purposes let alone the use of hard drugs and stimulants.
Related to the seizure of BOKO Haram’s fuel, the militants have adopted more ancient war practices of using horses to conduct their attacks especially in the villages. This has prompted the Nigerian military to issue a decree banning the use of horses in Borno State of Nigeria. The horse ban is expected to aid in distinguishing the terrorist from the locals as the terrorist are bound to violate the order.
The three-month ultimatum given to the military has seen a lot of drastic measures taken towards decapitating the Boko Haram militants that have begun with the cutting of their supply lines including, fuel, electricity and the seizure of their bomb factory.
Boko Haram’s insurgency self-titled Western Caliphate of the Islamic State has killed an estimated 15,000 people and displaced some 2.1 million others since 2009.
