The Joint Task Force (JTF) in Maiduguri this morning foiled an attempted attack on one of its vehicles.
The incident occurred in the Costain area where suspected Boko Haram operatives planted a remote controlled Improvised Explosive Device (IED) on the road. The target was a JTF Toyota Hilux vehicle.
A statement by JTF spokesman, Lt. Colonel Sagir Musa said nobody was killed or wounded.
“The area was cordoned off, searched and swept by the bomb disposal arm of the JTF,” he said. “Normalcy has since been restored in the area.”
