Security operatives have demoblilised materials suspected to be Improvised Explosive Devises (IED) planted near the office of the Borno State Pilgrims Welfare Board in Maiduguri
The Public Relations Officer of the Borno State Police Command, Mr Victor Isuku, made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Maiduguri on Monday.
He said that the IEDs, which were planted by people suspected to be members of the Boko Haram terror group were demobilised by a joint security team.
“I can confirm that it was a joint police/military operation that demobilised the IEDs but thank God, no live was lost or injuries recorded”, Isuku said.
NAN recalls that no fewer than 20 people were killed after three female suicide bombers detonated IEDs in Chibok, headquarters of the Chibok Local Government Area of the state last month. (NAN)
