7 Boko Haram bomb experts arrested in Kaduna

The Nigerian Army has arrested 7 suspected Boko Haram bomb-making specialists.

The 7 insurgents, who were arrested in Kaduna state and surroundings, are said to have been present in the state, to carry out attacks using Improvised Explosives Devices (IED).

The insurgents were rounded up by the army ‘after painstaking surveillance and proactive intelligence operations over period of time’.

Colonel Sani Usman, Army spokesperson, released a statement to this effect on Sunday, December 27.

“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.”

“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.”
