Troops of Opera­tion Lafiya Dole on Thursday inter­cepted and killed a male suicide bomber who at­tempted to detonate an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) at a mili­tary point on the outskirts of Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.
The terrorist, who at­tempted to penetrate the troops’ location at Ji­dari Polo General Area, was said to have come in through Alidawari Vil­lage, about 4km to Jidari, strapped with heavy IEDs’ vest.
In a statement yester­day, Army Spokesman, Col Sani Usman, said that the troops on sighting the intruder laid in wait for him but he refused to stop despite several warnings and challenges.
He said that the com­bined team of Nigerian Army and Nigeria Police Explosive Ordinance De­vice (EOD) safely defused the IEDs laden vest on the suicide bomber after he was neutralised.
