Multiple bomb blasts in Maiduguri signifies desperation of Boko Haram – Military
A day after suspected members of the Boko Haram group set off three improvised explosive devices in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, the Nigerian military has described the actions of the sect as “ a desperate move”.
In a statement released, Colonel Sani Usman who is the Acting Director Army Public Relations said the attacks signify a high level of desperation on the part of the Boko Haram terrorists.
“This is to inform the public that there were explosions at Gomari and Ajilari general area in Maiduguri at about 7.21pm today (Sunday) evening. Although details are not clear, it is important to note the attacks signify high level of desperation on the part of the Boko Haram terrorists.”
He said, “Security personnel and emergency management teams have been drafted to the area and appropriate security measures being taken.”
No casualty figure has been released by authorities.
However, eyewitnesses say the death toll is expected to be high due to the severity of the explosion.
Colonel Usman assured Nigerians that the military would not be deterred in its determined efforts of defeating Boko Haram terrorists in the shortest possible time.
Nigeria President Muhammadu Buhari has given the Nigerian Military a three month deadline to tackle insurgency in the country.
“We would like to assure the public also that now the terrorists have shown their ugly presence in such areas, there is need for more vigilance, security consciousness and prompt reporting of suspicious persons or group of persons in their midst.”
“This would enable the security take appropriate measures against them. The Department of State Services is also on the trail of the perpetrators of this heinous and dastardly act.” He added, “It would be recalled that their previous attempts to attack and blow up Allau dam was thwarted.”
Boko Haram has been waging a six-year war to establish an Islamist state in the northeast of Nigeria.
However, following renewed efforts by Nigerian troops with the help of Chad, Niger and Cameroon the activities of the group are being challenged.
