Troops of Operation LAFIYA DOLE Sunday evening intercepted and destroyed 10 suspected Boko Haram suicide bombers at the outskirts of Maiduguri, capital of Borni State, the Nigerian Army said.

“Contrary to earlier media reports and rumours flying around, 2 Boko Haram terrorists suspected suicide bombers earlier intercepted by vigilant troops disclosed their colleagues’ intent to enter the city with the aim of detonating bombs in selected public places. Consequently, the troops laid ambush on the terrorists suspected routes along Damboa road and eliminated them,” Colonel Mustapha Anka, Media Coordinator of Operation LAFIYA DOLE, said in a statement.

He disclosed that the suicide bombers were intercepted in three different locations approaching the city; Ajiri area towards Damboa road, High Court axis and the Eye Hospital Area.

“The Explosive Ordinance Device team have been mobilised and they are combing the general a area as well as clearing the debris. Normalcy has been restored to the general area and the public are please advised to go about their normal businesses and social activities. However, it is important to maintain more vigilance and security consciousness,” Col. Anka said.
