Boko Haram: Military Makes Startling Discovery of Bombs Factory in Kumshe.
As the battle to clear the remnants of Boko Haram terrorists intensify, Nigerian Army troops carrying out mop up operations as well as search and rescue drills have discovered several bomb making factories belonging to Boko Hatam terrorists in Borno state.
A statement signed by the Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Col Sani Usman said “Troops of 7 Division Strike Group Team B on clearance operations of the remnants of Boko Haram terrorists at Kumshe made startling discoveries of Improvised Explosive Device (IED) making factories replete with some equipment”.
Recall that last Tuesday the Nigerian Army’s 33 Artillery Brigade, said it arrested 4 persons suspected to be Boko Haram terrorist’s spies that include the one that carried out surveillance on the Madalla church before it was bombed.
According to the army, “The men Victor Moses, Abubakar Shettima, Salisu Mohammed Bello and Umar Sadiq Madaki have been carrying out surveillance mission for the Boko Haram terrorists on target for suicide bombings or attacks.
“Luck ran out for them when Victor Moses went to a mosque in Bauchi and pretended that he wanted to be converted to Islam and the people suspecting that he was not genuine, promptly reported the matter.
“On interrogation he confirmed that he was working for an Islamic cleric in Gombe (now at large) and that their point of contact was Abubakar Shetima based in Jos.
“He confessed to casing targets for suicide bomb attacks including that of the Catholic Church Madalla, Suleja, Niger State on Christmas day, 25th December 2011.
“The accused persons are currently undergoing further interrogation, were paraded by the Commander 33 Artillery Brigade, Brigadier General Abraham Dusu at the Brigade’s Headquarters, Shadawanka Barracks, Bauchi on Monday.
Commander of the Brigade, Brig-General Abraham Dusu, confirmed that Moses “confessed to conducting surveillance for Boko Haram” from a shop near the St Theresa Roman Catholic Church in Madalla, near Abuja where about 44 worshippers were killed when a bomb ripped through the chuch on December 25, 2011 in what was Boko Haram’s deadliest attack on Christian places of worship.
