Boko Haram: Army bans traditional rulers from using horses in Borno


The 7 Division of the Nigerian Army in Maiduguri has prohibited Borno residents, particularly traditional rulers from using horses in view of recent attacks by the Boko Haram sect which were executed by horse-riding militants. It warned that anyone found using a horse would be considered as an insurgent.

The warning was contained in a statement issued by spokesman of the Division, Colonel Tukur Gusau, during the destruction of dry fish worth millions of naira which were seized from the Boko Haram insurgents at different locations in Borno State.
The statement disclosed that the seized fish was another source of funding for the terrorists that has been truncated. He disclosed that the seized fish consist 2,000 cartons of smoke fish and dry meat that the insurgents carted away from innocent traders.
“We invited you to witness the burning of N2,000 cartons and smoke fish and smoke meat, which they use in funding their terrorism,” the statement noted.
It explained that all revenue sources of the insurgents have been blocked — both their sources of fuel supply and food.
The Army, therefore called on the general public to continue to support “Operation Lafiya Dole”, which means “Peace by Force”, by promptly reporting suspicious movement of vehicles or persons loaded with supplies meant for Boko Haram terrorists.
