The adage that everyday is for the thief and one day for the house owner has once more been proved true with the killing of a dare-devil Boko Haram commander who specialised in attacking and killing security agents.
Notorious terrorist Mallam Husaini “died in an encounter between his group and a military convoy along Jos – Bauchi highway,” Nigeria’s Defence Headquarters (DHQ) announced yesterday.
“Husaini who led a cell of the terrorists billed to operate in the Plateau is known to have led an attack on Headquarters, Police Special Anti-Robbery Squad in Abuja in November 2012. He also led the attack on military convoy moving from Lokoja to Kaduna where 2 soldiers were killed in January 2013,” a story on DHQ’s official website said, adding:
“The terrorist gang had attacked a military convoy while on an operational patrol between Jos and Bauchi. At the end of the encounter, the Ford bus used by the terrorists was captured, 8 primed Improvised Explosive Devices, rifles, pistols and about 70 rounds of ammunition.”
