The Nigerian Army monday confirmed the death of Boko Haram’s chief bomb maker and a high-ranking terrorist.
This is just as a video was released showing the gruesome scene of how female terrorists are tasked with slaughtering women captives in parts of Sambisa forest in the North-east.
Army spokesman, Col. Sani Usman, disclosed this in a statement, confirming that the killing of the sect’s bomb maker happened in the early hours of Monday.
Usman said that the suspected chief bomb maker, apart from his high status in the command structure of Boko Haram, was one of their capable hands involved in making improvised explosive devices (IEDs), coming after their chief scientist, called Abu RPG who was killed long ago.
“The chief bomb maker was killed by one of the bodyguards of the Boko Haram terrorist leader, Abubakar Shekau, as he was about to abscond just like several others are doing because of the intensity of Operation Crackdown,” Usman said.
He also disclosed that “one Julelebeeb who was appointed to take over is now completely blind because his two eyes were reportedly shattered by shrapnel in the process of preparing an IED to consolidate his appointment”.
There is no doubt, Usman noted that “this development has dealt a devastating blow on the terrorists’ capacity on IED preparation, suicide bombing and their ability to sustain their criminal acts.”
He said the troops were continuing with the clearance and rescue operations successfully in order to completely clear Boko Haram terrorists wherever they might be hiding.
It was also disclosed how the army’s operation in Sambisa forest has uncovered the murderous activities of Boko Haram women fighters with a video showing them slaughtering one of their female captives.
The horrifying video showed a woman who passionately pleaded for her life being beheaded by one of the hardened female terrorists.
