Weapons found in their possession included AK-47 rifles, single-barrel shotgun, double-hand shotgun and various calibres of arms.

Other items recovered from the group included seven packs of Improvised Explosive Devices (IED), two rocket-propelled gun chargers, two machetes, bomb detonators, camouflage and other military uniforms. They were also with charms, seven vehicles and eight tricycles.

Olukolade said that it was believed that some stranded terrorists were keen on establishing new camps. According to him, most of them are currently in search of food, and are being trailed by military operatives.

The defence spokesman also disclosed that there were a few encounters with some insurgents in forest locations, apart from the identified and destroyed camps.

He said that the intensive cordon and search operation being conducted by the troops of the Special Forces received a major boost from civilian cooperation in communities close to locations being focused in the operation.
