How Boko Haram’s Chief Bomb Maker Was Killed
In what appears to be 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, the chief bomb maker and a high ranking terrorist, was shot dead on Monday.
The chief bomb maker, apart from his high status in the command structure of the Boko Haram terrorists, 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).
Army spokesman, Colonel S.K. Usman, who disclosed this to newsmen in Abuja, on Monday, said the chief bomb maker was killed by one of the body guards of the Boko Haram terrorists leader, Abubakar Shekau, as he was about to run away just like several others were doing because of the intensity of Operation Crackdown.
He also said, in a related development, that one Julelebeeb, who was appointed to take over, was now completely blind because his two eyes were shattered by shrapnel, in the process of preparing an IED to consolidate his appointment.
According to him, “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.”
The Army reassured the public that their troops were continuing with the clearance and rescue operations successfully in order to completely clear Boko Haram terrorists wherever they might be hiding.
