As terrorists continue to scamper for safety in their last bastion, Sambisa forest,  following the relentless chase given them by Nigerian troops, the insurgents have left behind  in the process, sensitive materials including arms, ammunitions, ICT gadgets and video recordings behind.
PRNigeria, a METROWATCH partner, has gathered that many of the video materials captured by the troops are currently being analysed by military experts.
A preliminary review of the items, show that some of the videos included recording of scenes of trials, beheadings, executions, stoning, floggings and those taken during preparations for suicide attacks.
A military source informed PRNigeria that capturing such recordings was another major feat in the battle against insurgency as it was a tool used to really terrify mostly civilian population and cow them into submission.
The source added that “Some of the videos were meant for release through their normal channels to the public before they were dislodged from their camps. They also show the barbaric life in their so-called caliphate”
“The media and the public are advised to be careful in handling or sharing sensitive and offensive videos depicting atrocities that some viewers may find disturbing,” the source added.
Since they invaded Sambisa Forest a few weeks ago, the Nigerian troops have liberated about 1,000 women and children from the various terrorists camps already dismantled.
There have been tales of woes and great distress from many of those rescued from the terrorists about the insurgents’ reign of terror and lately of despondency within the ranks of the fighters.
When contacted on the discovery of video recordings, Director, Defence Information, Major-General Chris Olukolade, said: “A number of vital materials, apart from arms and ammunition, have been recovered which are being subjected to intelligent analyses. We don’t want to say much about that now.”
