A suspected bomber was, yesterday, killed in Maiduguri, Borno State capital, when a bomb, strapped to a wheel barrow exploded at Ramat Square along West End road and Gwange ward.

Confirming the incidents in a statement, Joint Task Force, JTF, Spokesman, Lt.-Col. Sagir Musa, said: “There was an Improvised Explosive Device, IED, explosion today (yesterday) at West End, Ramat Square General Area of Maiduguri metropolis.

“The device was concealed in a wheel barrow by suspected Boko Haram sect member and it exploded at about 8.35am. The owner of the wheel barrow was killed instantly, while attempting to escape.”

Sagir, however, said apart from the mastermind of the blast, no other casualty was recorded and that the area was cordoned off and swept by the Bomb Disposal Arm of the JTF.
