Intelligence report com­ing from security sourc­es in Maiduguri, the Bor­no state capital, revealed that, about seven Hilux trucks and 40 motorcycles conveying the dreaded Islamic militants, Boko Haram, were seen last night heading to Yakku and Afari villages; about 30 kilo­meters away from Magumeri local government area, where the sect attacked last week.
The information, which was conveyed to security sourc­es on Wednesday by locals in the area suggested that, such clandestine gathering by Boko Haram always suggest a heavy onslaughts on Villages and Community targeted by the insurgence.
According to the informa­tion, there is every likelihood that, the Boko Haram militants are preparing to attack anoth­er town within the vicinity of Gubio or Gajiram or any set­tlement around the area of the northern Borno as their move­ment suggested.
” They may not be looking for a place to hibernate,” a se­curity source told our corre­spondent, ” it is their own style of unleashing terror, but there is good preparation and our men are on their trail already,” our source said.
Asked if the military is well prepared to engage them where they are being sighted, he added that, ” We are gather­ing information on their move­ment. There is another infor­mation that some of them were sighted gathering at Kawiya Kulo Ngudiye area of Jakana town in Kaga local government area. Precisely, about 8 kilome­ters away from Jakana, but the troops cannot engage them just like that, without adequate in­formation as regards innocent victims they always use as hu­man shield,” he said.
He said, troops are also be­ing mobilized to secure most of the villages and communi­ties the militants are likely to attack.
