The Nigerian troops have recorded a significant success in the fight against the insurgents lately with some being captured.

John Enenche coordinator of the defence media operations stated that soldiers at the frontline are also provided with personal protective equipment (PPE), and that social distancing rule is observed by troops.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way everything will be done,” he said.

“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.”
