A car carrying high profile explosives was on Monday afternoon intercepted by men of the Joint Task Force in Maiduguri.
The explosives were meant for suicide attacks in Borno and Yobe states. A security source said that the car was found around Moduganari area, three hours after men of the JTF condoned off the area in search of it.
Security forces have been on the trail of the bomb laden vehicle since Sallah day, before it was finally intercepted yesterday. Contacted on phone, the spokesman of the JTF, Lt. Col Sagir Musa said he would brief the press about the incidence at a later time.
