In spite of the harsh operation environment, Nigerian soldiers are still doing their best. Defence Headquarters in Abuja says it has uncovered a rocket launcher production facility in Kano State.
According to Director of Defence Information, Major-General Chris Olukolade, the facility was discovered at Dorayi District in Kumbotso Local Government Area of the state, after a cordon-and-search exercise.
“The discovery followed the arrest of a prominent member of the terrorist group,” Olukolade said, adding that locally-made anti-aircraft gun and mortar accessories and rocket-propelled grenade tubes and launcher were recovered along with accessories.
“Also seized were three AK47 rifles and hundreds of rounds of assorted ammunitions, as well as drilling machines and other fabricating equipment.”
Major General Olukolade urged the general public to always report suspicious persons to security agencies in their localities to prevent unwholesome act by the heartless terrorists.
