By Senator Iroegbu in Abuja
The Nigerian Military Theatre Command of Operation Lafiya Dole has indicated a chilling possibility that Boko Haram terrorists might have poisoned water sources in some villages and communities of the North-East.
This was disclosed Wednesday in a statement signed by the Deputy Director of Army Public Relations (DAPR), 7Div Maiduguri, Col. Tukur Gusau.
Gusau said that the terrorists have now resorted to poisoning water sources like wells and streams in areas from where they were dislodged by gallant troops or areas threatened by offensive operations.
He confirmed:”The latest being the poisoning of the cattle water ponds in Kangallam village along Marte and Abadam axis in Borno State where a large number of cattle died after drinking water from the ponds”.
