Official statement from the Nigerian military on Boko Haram attack in Borno state today

“This afternoon, combined team of Nigeria policemen maintaining security duties at the entrance of Borno State Government Secretariat, (which was known as Musa Usman Secretariat) in Maiduguri intercepted and prevented a male suicide bomber from entering to attack workers based on suspicion.

“Unfortunately, in the process of stopping him, he detonated the Improvised Explosive Device (IED) on his body, instantly killing himself, a policeman and critically injuring another policeman that stopped him from gaining entry into the Secretariat Complex. Sadly, the injured policeman died later. Similarly, 18 people have sustained various degrees of injuries and have since been evacuated to hospital for treatment.

“Troops have cordoned off the area and evacuated all workers from the Secretariat and reinforced security. In addition, the Explosive Ordinance Device (EOD) and K9 teams have been mobilized to the Secretariat for screening until it is declared safe.

“This unfortunate incident has reinforced the need for more security consciousness and awareness on the part of all of us as the remnants of the Boko Haram terrorists and their sympathizers still mingle with the society. It therefore behoves on all and sundry to ensure that they are detected and prevented from carrying out their dastardly acts,”.

  1. All these are still going on and the FG is busy granting Amnesty to about 800 boko harams. What an irony?

    Even as they are not done winning the battle holistically against the terrorists! What a shame.
    I dont think we really know where we are going in this country.
    God have mercy on the victims and graant them enternal peace.
    May God expose the reminant of the terrorist so that the Army will exterminate them before they kill more innocent souls.

    I take a stroll…
