Director of Defence Information, Major General Chris Olukolade has revealed that Boko Haram insurgents have resorted to using bows and arrows in their numerous attacks.
This, according to him was as a result of lack of arms and ammunition on the part of the insurgents.
Olukolade made this shocking disclosure on Thursday, April 23, 2015 during a press brief with journalists in Abuja.
He said, “The Boko Haram terrorists have run out of arms and ammunition because the usual supplies they get are not forthcoming.
“They now have only bow and arrows, machetes, daggers and other local weapons. You can find more than 500 of them with only few having rifles and even when one or two of them have rifles, they have no ammunition.
“I am optimistic that the military will succeed in killing many of these insurgents who have been terrorizing residents for the past three years.”
