Petrol Tankers Now Used By Bombers In Carrying Explosives – COAS

Ihejirika-COAS-298x295According to the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt. Gen Azubuike Ihejirika, bombers have devised a new method of carrying explosives to their various targets.

The COAS who was speaking at a three-day interactive session on ‘military-media relations in Nigeria, with the theme: “Enhancing military-media relations towards improved security” held at 81 Division auditorium, Marina, Lagos, yesterday said:

“Recent arrest and subsequent recovery of a large amount of explosives showed that bombers have resorted to hiding explosives under petrol tankers”.

The army chief said the new method based on intelligence reports was carried out in Lagos.

Lamenting the increasing presence of checkpoints particularly in the Northern parts of the country, the COAS said he acknowledged that the trend had posed a serious challenge but would be in place for obvious reasons.
