Metro Boko Haram Chief Bomb Maker Killed - Nigerian Army



The Nigerian army has said a Boko Haram chief bomb maker was killed by another Boko Haram member when he attempted to run away from the group.

A statement on Monday from army spokesman Colonel Sani Usman described the incident as a major breakthrough in ongoing clearance and rescue operation by the Nigerian military.

He said: “The chief bomb maker, apart from his high status in the command structure of the Boko Haram terrorists, he was one of their capable hands involved in making Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), coming after their chief scientist, called Abu RPG (who has been killed long ago).”


“The chief bomb maker was killed by one of the body guard of the Boko Haram terrorists leader, Abubakar Shekau as he was about to run away just like several others are doing because of the intensity of Operation Crackdown,” Usman added.

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.

Col. Usman noted that this development has dealt a devastating blow on their capacity on IED preparation, suicide bombing and sustenance of their criminal acts.
