Disguised  terrorist suspects being interrogated by  troopsNigeria Defence Headquaters  (DHQ) on Monday said troops carrying out cordon and search after the recent  recapture of Baga town in Borno State have arrested terrorists disguised as women.

A  statement by defence spokesman Major General Chris Olukolade said: “The cordon and search in Baga has revealed some terrorists disguising as women.  The searches are also yielding more discoveries of arms especially bombs hidden in various locations, especially Baga town.”

Olukolade added that: “Apart from those captured in the course of fighting, many arrests of terrorists hiding in the town are being made and troops are still busy interrogating the suspects.”

 He also said as part of efforts to wipe out the terrorist, the Nigerian Air Force has stepped up its air bombardment of identified targets in Gwoza, Bama and Sambisa forest, preparatory to other phases of the mission.

 “Having successfully liberated Baga where the terrorists have been marauding, the troops’ attention has now been focused on consolidation of the security of the area to pave way for return of citizens,” the DHQ statement said
