According to him, the insurgents will be desperate for guns and ammunition after the army chief breaks the heat aimed at them. He went on to say that the terrorists are also getting weapons from Libya and Chad.
When asked if the terrorists occupying some parts of the northeast region are a setback, Ndume didn’t really say. He explained that the insurgents are holding on to the cities due to the insufficient number of troops on the ground.
The legislature further stated that the terrorist group does not hold on to a community permanently.
Some of the residents confirmed this, adding that the insurgents went from house to house preaching to them to accept their ideology.
Despite the presence of the army battalion in the community, this has not stopped the insurgents from spreading their missions.
