7 Boko Haram IED experts arrested in Kaduna
Seven Boko Haram Improvised Explosiv Devices (IEDs) specialists have been arrested in Kaduna by the troops of the Nigerian after what the military called painstaking surveillance and proactive intelligence operations over period of time.
According to statement by Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman,
Acting Director Army Public Relations “from all indications, the suspects were in Kaduna to conduct suicide bombings, kill and maimed innocent citizens in the state and other surrounding areas during the festive period”
He said that recently in Maiduguri some of them were arrested while trying to detonate IEDs carried in food containers in public places.
“The arrest of these suspects would no doubt assist in the fight against terrorism in the country, more so as the military have technically defeated the Boko Haram terrorists in the field, the terrorists have resorted to attacking soft targets through suicide bombings, IEDs and harassing attacks on isolated communities.
“Therefore, the public are please requested to continue to be more vigilant and security conscious by reporting suspicious persons and movements to the security agencies.
This request has become necessary because the terrorists have resorted to mingling with the public across the country after sensing the futility of their encounter with troops in the North East. Therefore, they adopt other methods of perpetuating violence in the society”.
