Joint efforts from Nigeria’s security operatives have helped demoralized Improvised Explosive Devises (IEDs), which was planted near the office of the Borno State Pilgrims Welfare Board in Maiduguri.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the disclosure was made known by the Public Relations Officer of the Borno State Police Command, Mr Victor Isuku, in Maiduguri on Monday, February 1, 2016.
According to him, the IEDs, which were planted by suspected members of the Boko Haram terror group, were demobilized by a joint security team.
He said: “I can confirm that it was a joint police/military operation that demobilized the IEDs but thank God, no live was lost or injuries recorded.”
It would be recalled, not less 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.
