A suicide bomber who rammed into a military check point in Bajoga, Gombe State, yesterday, failed to achieve his mission. This was made known in a press release today by Major General Chris Olulokolade, Director, Defence Information.

The bomber tried to escape, but was brought down by vigilant soldiers as he tried to flee after hitting a military Amoured Personnel Carrier with his IED-laden Honda car, Olukolade said. He added that the explosives which failed to detonate have been evacuated and handed to the police.

Also in Kano, security forces have raided terrorists’ hideout in Nasarawa Local Government Area, leading to the arrest of bomb-making experts who are already helping in the investigation into activities of bombers lately. Officers believe that the efforts will yield useful clues.

Troops deployed in all locations of the counter terrorism campaign have been directed to sustain the tempo of operations all through the festive period to ensure that the intention of terrorists to attack civilian target is duly frustrated.
