Troops destroy Boko Haram’s bomb making factory

The authorities of the Nigerian Army last night said troops had destroyed an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) factory at Miyati and Nyaleri villages, along Maiduguri-Bulabulin-Danboa road, in Damboa Local Government Area, Borno State.
A statement by the Acting Spokesman of the Army, Col. Sani Usman, said three suspected Boko Haram terrorists were arrested in the operation, including an “Ameer”, described as a high contact and foot soldier of the insurgents.
According to Usman, apart from the IEDs, other items recovered by troops included a Peugeot pick-up van, foodstuffs, 10-KVA Lister generator, gas cylinders, borehole pumping machine, three bags of maize, one bag of millet and 13 empty AGO jerry cans, amongst others.
Usman added that the haul was made following a joint operation of the Army and men of the Nigerian Air Force, who provided air cover and tracking.

“It was part of the determined effort by the military to rout out terrorists in the general area and open more roads hitherto held by the terrorists for public usage.
“It is also part of the renewed effort and vigour on the part of our troops to meet up with the set dateline that has turned the tide and momentum of the battle against the Boko Haram terrorists in our country.
“I am glad to say that the troops are on high morale and very excited with their accomplishment thus far.
“In a related development, troops have made substantial progress in an advance to reclaim and destroy terrorists held areas within Gamboru Ngala general area,” the statement added.
