The Defence Headquarters says troops, operating in the North-East, have captured a massive armoury with arms and ammunition belonging to insurgents.

The Director of Defence Information, Major-General Chris Olukolade said in a statement that a dump of the terrorists was sighted in one of the camps, around the Lake Chad area, that fell on Friday night in the ongoing counter terrorism operations.

The defence spokesman said the large quantities of weapons recovered in the raid were still being evacuated from the scene of the night raid where several terrorists also were killed.

He said that similar operations took place in other camps in collaboration with troops of the Multi-National Joint Task Force.
