The 7 Division Nigerian Army in Maiduguri has urged the general public especially traditional rulers in Borno State to discontinue the use of horses for the meantime as the ferocious Boko Haram sects have resorted to using it as a means of transportation.
According to The Nation, anyone found using a horse would be considered as an insurgent.
The warning was made known by the spokesman of the Division Col. Tukur Gusau during the destruction of dry fish worth millions of naira that was seized from the Boko Haram insurgents at different locations in Borno State.
Colonel Tukur Gusau informed that the seized fish was another source of funding for the terrorists that has been truncated.
Colonel Gusau said; “we invited you to witnessed the burning of N2, 000 cartons and smoke fish and smoke meat, which they use in funding their terrorism.”
