Along Gulwa and Musuri in Gamboru Ngala Local Government Area of Borno State, gallant Nigerian troops killed several Boko Haram terrorists after heavy fighting in the early hours of today, Monday 15 March 2021.
Incriminating materials including AK47 rifles, Fabric Nationale (FN) rifles, a motorcycle, bicycles, mechanic tool boxes, large quantity of batteries used for making of Improvise Explosive Devices, sex enhancement drugs and a sewing machine amongst other things.
One of the unlikely thing on the list of items recovered is the "sewing machine". Many people would ask the question, "why do these terrorists need a sewing machine?"

The men who commit terrorist acts in Boko Haram’s name are often seen in propaganda videos wearing the same sort of headbands, flags and clothing. Most of these wears may be sewed by tailors in the ranks of the insurgents. See example below;
Apart from using it to sew uniforms and headbands for their fighters, what else do you think Boko Haram Terrorists need the sewing machine for?
