The Joint Task Force (JTF) on Operation Restore Order (ORO), on Tuesday, intercepted a bomb-laden vehicle in Maiduguri, a statement issued by the JTF spokesman, Lt. Col. Sagir Musa, revealed.

Musa disclosed that the arrest took place on Monday  at about 6 p.m.  

“The JTF, based on information obtained from an arrested Boko Haram terrorist and moles in the Boko Haram Camp, intercepted a Toyota Camry 2001 model car  heavily loaded with Improvised Explosive Device,” he said. 

“The car has registration number: Borno AA 867 MAF, and was intercepted in Tudu quarters, Maduganari area of Maiduguri.

The JTF said that the vehicle was heading to an unknown destination when it was intercepted, adding that the sponsors of the suicide bomber, led by a high profile Terrorist Commander, were under surveillance and would soon be arrested.

“This is the deadliest bomb-laden vehicle to be arrested by the JTF in Maiduguri. Had the suicide bomber gotten to his target, fatalities would have been very high.”

The statement said that bomb materials and incendiaries recovered in the car included four DAF gas oil cylinders, three constructed IED, 18 x 9 volts batteries with two switches, and four x 25-litre jerricans with incendiary materials earmarked for suicide bombing.
