Nigerian troops have apprehended two Boko Haram suspects in Borno State with sex enhancement pills and other items.
A statement issued by the Army Director of Public Relations, Onyema Nwachukwu, on Tuesday, said the troops also recovered a hand grenade and other logistics supplies being used by the terrorists during the clearance operation.
According to Nwachukwu, the operation, which was carried out on Saturday, July 3, 2021 had the troops of 195 Battalion, Sector 1 Operation HADIN KAI, and Civilian Joint Task Force on a clearance operation within the Muna general area of Borno State.
He added that the joint operation led to the recovery of assorted items including ex-enhancement drugs meant for Boko Haram terrorist replenishments.
“Items recovered from the BHT logistics suppliers include one hand grenade, one axe, one vehicle, five bicycles, two mobile phones (Techno and Infinix) and some quantity of Petroleum, Oil and Lubricant. The troops equally recovered large quantity of psychedelic and sex enhancement drugs, pesticides and insecticides, as well as food stuff, amongst others,” the statement read.
Nwachukwu noted that the vigilant troops, who left no stone unturned during the clearance operation, combed the entire area, destroying several identified terrorist camps.
He mentioned that during the operation, troops, however, came in contact with terrorists at Labe Village, who attempted fleeing but were swiftly intercepted by the troops.
