The Nigerian Defence Headquarters has disclosed some of the measures it has instituted to curb the spread of Coronavirus in the fight against terrorism especially on captured Boko Haram members.

Coordinator of defence media operations, John Enenche while speaking at a media briefing in Abuja said captured Boko Haram members are provided with face masks and also quarantined to curb the spread of Coronavirus.

Eneche said;

“The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way everything will be done.

“We have ordered for PPE for troops at the frontlines.

“The moment they (Boko Haram members) are captured, they are quarantined and given face masks while observing social distancing too.

“Captured or surrendered enemies are treated in line with the Geneva Convention. COVID-19 has changed the way things are done at the frontlines and in barracks.

“In addition to the Defence Industries Corporation of Nigeria (DICON) primary responsibility of producing defence equipment, it has succeeded in diversifying its human, equipment, machinery as well as research and development capacity, to support a much-needed strategic intervention to cushion the effects of the highly dreaded COVID 19 in the country”.
