Boko Haram bomb maker killed by colleague, another goes blind




In what can be described as a major breakthrough in the clearance and rescue operation by the Nigerian military, the chief bomb maker of the Boko Haram terrorist group was shot dead today.

A statement from the Acting Director Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Usman indicated that the bomb maker was gunned down as he was about to run away, like several others because of the intensity of Operation crackdown.

The deceased was one of the terrorists’ capable hands involved in making Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), coming after their chief scientist, known as Abu RPG, who was killed some time ago.

The chief bomb maker was reportedly killed by a body guard to the terrorists leader, Abubakar Shekau
In a related development, one Julelebeeb who was appointed to take over is now completely blind because his two eyes were shattered by shrapnel, in the process of preparing an IED to consolidate his appointment.

There is no doubt, this development has dealt a devastating blow on the terrorists capacity on IED preparation, suicide bombing and their ability to sustain their criminal acts.

Colonel Usman assured Nigerians that “our troops are continuing with the clearance and rescue operations successfully in order to completely clear Boko Haram terrorists wherever they might be hiding.”
