Military declares Halilu Buzu wanted for Terrorism and Illegal arms supplies

The Nigerian Military has declared Halilu Buzu, pictured above, wanted for terrorist activities, illegal arms supplies, illegal mining, and cattle rustling. Announcing this in Abuja at the bi-weekly media briefing of the Defence Media Operations, the Director of Operations, Major General Edward Buba, said Halilu Buzu, who is an indigene of Niger, resides in a forest in Zamfara State, and often escapes to the Niger Republic after striking in Nigeria.

 

General Buba, however, said the military is working with its counterparts from the Niger Republic, to ensure the arrest of the terrorist, who has a lot of boys working for him.

 

Buba added that troops of the Nigerian Army succeeded in rescuing a total of 253 kidnapped victims in the last two weeks.

 

According to him, the feat was achieved by the Troops of Operations Y-Watch, the Troops of Nokia-Fighting Patrols, and the Troops of Operations Delta State.

 

While also announcing the killing of some insurgents, he said the fight against terrorism is one that “must be won.”

 

Speaking further, Buba also said that the troops neutralised 227 and arrested 529 terrorists. Eleven perpetrators of oil theft were also arrested in the weeks under review.
