According to the theatre Commander, “What we intend to do as part of our kinetic and non-kinetic efforts is to deny them the ability to get logistics which keeps them going. In carrying out effective strangulation of the terrorists, troops have intensified efforts at intercepting their logisticians and supply in order to deny them vital logistics.”
He explained that a typical example is the arrest of Haruna Fulani and Umaru on the 13th of July 2022 who were suspected logistics suppliers to the terrorists' Commander, Aliyu Ngolde, at Mandara mountains Gwoza general area.
He said items recovered from them include 13 bundles of women’s wrappers, 20 yards of black cotton, women's underwear and 25 pairs of rubber shoes among others.
