A counter-insurgency expert in Lake Chad region, Zagazola Makama, disclosed, yesterday, in Maiduguri that the terrorists had erected two hangers in the centre.

Makama said there has been influx of Boko Haram terrorists fleeing continued Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) onslaughts at Sambisa Forest in Borno State, Northeast of Nigeria.
