Nigerian troops are still scouting the immediate environ surrounding Boko Haram’s camp zero that was overthrown last week.
The Nigerian Army said she stumbled on some of Abubakar Shekau’s relics including his Qur’an and flag.
The Theatre Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, Maj.-Gen. Lucky Irabor, disclosed this today.
Irabor made the statement while updating newsmen on the final operation in the region tagged “Operation Rescue Final.”
“We believe that the Holy Book and the flag were abandoned by Abubakar Shekau while he escaped.
“The Book will be taken to the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Burutai, for onward presentation to Mr. President.
“We have also made a lot of arrests.
“Our troops in Damboa arrested about 15 Boko Haram members.
“We also arrested one Musa from Potiskum on Christmas day which was December 25.
“On December 26, our troops also intercepted two Boko Haram suspects in Maiduguri.
“We, therefore, warn residents of the state to be wary of people coming to hide in and around their houses.
“We are also warning residents to report any suspected Boko Haram members hiding in their houses.
“They should report these miscreants to relevant security agencies.
“Failure to do that would be tantamount to supporting and sympathizing with the sect’s activities,” Irabor said.
