Army stops Boko Haram Attack in Maiduguri
« on: November 17, 2015, 12:01:19 AM »
Nigeria’s army on Monday said it had foiled a planned Boko Haram attack on the northeastern city of Maiduguri using powerful assault rifles and home-made bombs.

Army spokesman Colonel Sani Usman said in a statement that “nine terrorists sneaked into Maiduguri armed with AK-47 assault rifles and (a) Hilux vehicle laden with 20 improvised explosive devices”.

The IEDs were “meant to be detonated at some selected targets in the city”, he added.

Nigeria’s army has in recent months claimed a series of successes against Boko Haram, pushing them out of captured territory, destroying camps and rescuing hundreds of people held captive.

It has also claimed the arrest of a number of wanted suspects.
