Army vows to capture terror instigators

16 March 2016, 20:44

Abuja - The Army has vowed to capture and ensure the perpetrators of the terror following an attack that rocked a village on the outskirts of Maiduguri are brought to book.

At least 22 people were killed and 18 others have sustained various degrees of injuries after an improvised explosive attack carried out by two female carriers in Ummarari village near Molai, on the outskirts of the Borno State capital city.

“While we commiserate with the families of the victims of this dastardly act, we wish to reassure the public that we would continue to rout the remnants of the Boko Haram terrorists wherever they may be hiding,” Col. Sani Kukasheka Usman, Acting Director Army Public Relations, said.

“We will not rest on our oars until all those that masterminded this latest heinous and other similar crimes are apprehended and brought to justice,” he added.

Usman said troops, security agents and care givers had been mobilized to the scene, while the wounded have been evacuated to Molai General Hospital for treatment.

The troops, security agents and the civilian support groups have secured the area and are combing the environment for possible clues.

“Meanwhile, we implore the members of the public to be more security conscious, cooperate with the troops and security agencies. They should also please report any suspicious persons, objects or happenings to troops or security agencies at all times,” said Usman.
