The Nigerian Army on Wednesday said Boko Haram terrorists have resorted to poisoning water sources like wells and streams in areas they were dislodged by gallant troops or areas threatened by offensive operations.

Colonel Tukur Gusau, Deputy Director Army Public Relations, in a statement said the latest was the poisoning of the cattle water ponds in KANGALLAM village along MARTE and ABADAM axis in Borno State, where a large number of cattle died after drinking water from the ponds. No human life was lost.

The spokesman said the act of the Boko Haram sect was aimed at taking their own pound of flesh on the innocent citizens and livestock as a result of the unbearable offensive operations through the combined effort of the Nigerian Army and the Nigerian Air Force to route them out completely from their enclaves and hideouts all over the North East.


The Army advised residents in the area to be careful and avoid as much as possible drinking water from unverified sources, especially in locations that troops routed out Boko Haram terrorists.
