The Joint Task Force (JTF) commander Victor Ebhaleme in a statement today said that soldiers defused five bombs in Kaleri ward of London Chiki in Maiduguri, a city notorious for bomb and shooting attacks blamed on the Boko Haram sect.

In his words;

“We defused five IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices)… we believe to have been planted by members of the Boko Haram sect which would have wreaked monumental havoc if they had detonated,”

“We have succeeded in arresting six high-profile members of Boko Haram in a raid on their hideout following useful information provided us by some residents,”

The JTF commander added that the six were being questioned and gave no further details.

On Tuesday, Soldiers shot dead four suspected Boko Haram members and injured five others in the same city.

Maiduguri is the home ground of the dreaded Boko Haram sect.



  1. Big up to our Armed Forces. Really doing a great job out there. Can the govt be corrageous enough to put them on trial. Hope these mass mauderers doesn’t excape through the back door through the connivance of their brothers in the Armed Forces. We are watching.

  2. Thumbs up to the NAF JTF group in Maiduguri. can we trust the AGF to put them on trial? They need to be tried so they can tell us their main sponsors. Jonathan needs to act and fast now. Retrieve the soldiers from Lagos and level Borno ASAP. Do what OBJ did at Odi and this mess will be over in no time

  3. I will say a good job done so far,but i want the JTF should know that the end of a thing is better than the begining thereof,dont stop on this success,there is more to be done. concerning the top BOKO HARAM leaders should not go free even if a world power deside to fight and we want to know those who supplies them the instument. thanks God help and Bless Nigeria.
