Infighting claims life of Boko Haram bomb maker

24 May 2016, 06:24

Abuja – The Army has announced a high-ranking member of the Boko Haram has been gunned down during infighting within the terror group.

The unnnamed member, said to be in charge of making Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), was reportedly killed by one of the bodyguard of the Boko Haram terrorists leader, Abubakar Shekau.

“In what will be described as a major breakthrough in the clearance and rescue operation by the Nigerian military and to also confirm that all is not well within the  Boko Haram terrorists camp, as their chief bomb maker and a high ranking terrorist, was shot dead today,” said Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Col Sani Kukasheka Usman.

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).”

Usman said another member of the terrorist, referred to as Julelebeeb who was appointed to take over, was now completely blind after a shrapnel shattered his eyes.

“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,” Usman added.
