Abuja - The army will begin the detonation of bombs recovered from the Boko Haram sect during the recent military operation in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states.
The spokesperson of the 7 Division of Nigerian Army in Borno State, Lt. Col. Sagir Musa, disclosed this in a press statement.
He warned residents and members of Chabbal, a community in the outskirts of Maiduguri, including farmers and herdsmen to remain indoors during the exercise scheduled for Friday.
Musa warned farmers and herdsmen at the detonating sites to keep away from the area until the exercise was completed.
“In view of the exercise, the military division wishes to inform members of general public, particularly herdsmen; and those people living and farming around the general areas as well as motorists not to panic at the massive movements of troops and their vehicles as well and sounds of explosives on Friday,” he said.
Musa said observing the military’s orders during the operation would prevent the loss of lives and destruction of property.
The Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states are the most affected by the problems of terror characterizing the country.
The military has however made inroads in the fight against terrorists culminating in the discovery of an assortment of weapons.
