We Saw Helicopters Dropping Arms, Food For Boko Haram – Residents

Displaced residents of Monguno, in Borno State,
which was recently taken over by Boko Haram,
have said they saw helicopters dropping arms
and food items for the insurgents in the bushes.
The IDPs, who said they spent about 48 hours in
the bush running towards Maiduguri, expressed
worry that the Boko Haram sect was not the only

Leader of the Nigeria Vigilante Group in Monguno,
Muhammed Sani,50, said he had, on several
occasions, spotted unusual delivery of items in

ones engaging soldiers near the barracks," he

bullets when the terrorists became irritated by his
anti-bullet charms that rendered bullets
ineffective. His shirt and trousers were riddled by
bullets, yet he remained unhurt, he said.
