The mastermind of Sunday’s terrorist attacks in Jos and yesterday’s suicide bombing in Zaria have landed in the net of the Nigerian military. Acting Director Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, announced this in a statement just issued in Maiduguri, Borno State.  

On Sunday 5th July 2015, suspected Boko Haram terrorists had carried out coordinated bomb and gun attacks on worshippers at Ýan Taya mosque, Dillimi Street, off Bauchi Road, Jos, where the Ramadan tafsir was holding, and Shagalinku Restaurant, along Bauchi Road, also in the Plateau State capital, leading to the death of over 48 persons, injuring several other persons and destruction of property.

And yesterday, the terrorists carried out another bomb attack on hapless workers undergoing verification exercise at Sabon Gari Local Government Secretariat, Zaria Kaduna State, which resulted in the death of over 25 people including a two-year-old child and destruction of property.

“Consequently, security cordon was established in the general areas especially along Bauchi, Gombe and the North Eastern part of the country by troops of 3 Division and Special Task Force, as well as the Department of State Services. This culminated in the successful arrest of the mastermind of the heinous terrorist acts and two of his accomplices at a checkpoint in Dadin Kowa, Gombe State. The terrorist kingpin and his colleagues who disguised in a trailer while trying to evade checks were fished out by troops of Nigerian Army,” Col. Usman disclosed.

“The arrested terrorists are currently being processed for further action and would soon face the full wrath of the law,” he said, adding:.

“The general public are hereby please requested to be more vigilant, security conscious and report any suspicious persons, movements, and facilities to the security agencies.”
