A statement released by its spokesman, Col. Tukur Gusau warned residents to avoid drinking water from unverified sources.
Gusau also added that the dreaded sect has resorted to poisoning water supply sources in the state.
An excerpt of the statement reads "Boko Haram terrorists have now resorted to poisoning water sources like wells and streams in areas they were dislodged by gallant troops or areas threatened by offensive operations.”
“Credible information available to the Theater Command indicates that though no human life was lost as a result of the barbaric act of the terrorists, however, some cattle were killed after drinking water from some poisoned sources,” Gusau said.
