JTF uncovers bomb factory in Damaturu


THE Joint Task Force (JTF) in Yobe State has uncovered a bomb making factory in Damaturu, the state capital.
The spokesman for the task force for Yobe State, Lieutenant Eli Lazarus who revealed this yesterday said the JTF discovered the factory during a search operation at the Buhari Housing Estate along Gashua- Maiduguri ring road in Damaturu metropolis.
Items recovered, according to him, include several bomb making items, ammunitions, bullet magazines as well as military, police and immigration uniforms.
Others include; medical supplies, tear gas canisters as well as two rifles.
Lieutenant Eli Lazarus also said during the search, JTF discovered a decomposed dead body buried within the premises, saying it might be a suspected Boko Haram member who could not make it in the process of the previous gun battles with the security forces.
He appealed to residents of Damaturu to be extra vigilant on activities going on within their areas and to report suspected persons to security agents for prompt action.
This is happening barely one week after JTF recovered 5,207 rounds of ammunition and some arms in the Kandahar area also of Damaturu metropolis.
