Nigerian troops have recovered video recordings, ICT gadgets and other sensitive materials including arms and ammunition left behind by terrorists following relentless pursuit by the troops.
Some of the videos included recording of scenes of trials, beheading, executions, stoning, floggings and those taken during preparations for suicide attacks.
Many of the video materials recovered by the troops are currently being analysed by military experts.
A military source informed Journalists that recovering such recordings was another major feat in the battle against insurgency.
The source added that “Some of the videos were meant for release through their normal channels to the public before they were dislodged from their camps. They also show the barbaric life in their so-called caliphate.”
When contacted on the discovery of video recordings, the Director, Defence Information, Major-General Chris Olukolade said, “A number of vital materials, apart from arms and ammunition, have been recovered which are being subjected to intelligent analyses. We don’t want to say much about that now.”
Since they invaded Sambisa Forest a few weeks ago, Nigerian troops have liberated about 1,000 women and children from the various terrorists camps already dismantled.
There have been tales of woes and great distress from many of those rescued from the terrorists about their reign of terror and lately of despondency within the ranks of the insurgents.
