The Civilian Joint Task Force, CJTF, a vigilante group supporting military operations in the North East, has arrested one terrorist alive and killed three others while looting farm produce along Maiduguri-Damaturu Road.
PRNigeria gathered that the terrorists were waylaid by the vigilante after attacking some farmers and looting farm produce.
A source told PRNigeria that the attack on farmers occurred on Thursday at about 3.30 pm near Daiwa.
The source said: “The terrorists shot the farmers, killing two while injuring one person.
“However, a team led by one Saminu Audu, Commander of Intelligence of the CJTF, intercepted some of the terrorists at Lamboa, between Minok-Janaka along the Damaturu-Maiduguri road.
“After a fierce confrontation, three of the terrorists were killed while one was captured alive.
“The terrorists are remnants of Boko Haram terrorists of the Abubakar Shekau faction that refused to pay allegiance to ISWAP. They depend on robbery and kidnapping of commuters for survival.”
