The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that a joint effort of security operatives have demobilized Improvised Explosive Devises (IED).
The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Borno state police command, Victor Isuku, confirmed that the devices planted near the office of the Borno State Pilgrims Welfare Board in Maiduguri, the state capital, were detonated 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.”
And although details of the latest incident remain sketchy as at press time, a tweet by Sahara Reporters confirmed that the twin blasts occurred this morning.
