7 Boko Haram Bombers Die in Explosive-laden Van

Seven suspected Boko Haram terrorists were
on Monday killed when an Improvised
Explosives Device hidden in a Toyota pick-up
van exploded before it could get to Biu
Market, suspected to be its destination.
A security source, who spoke on condition of
anonymity with PUNCH on the telephone on
Tuesday, said:
“A Toyota pick-up van, loaded with
maize and beans with IED hidden
under them, belonging to Boko
Haram insurgents, exploded near
Chikwarkir village of Biu, killing all the
occupants of the van.”
He said it was believed that the
insurgents intended to sneak into Biu
Market to detonate the explosives
and kill many traders and customers.
“As you know, it is harvest time and
people are taking their farm produce
to the market; but thank God, the
bomb exploded before they could get
to the market,” the source said.
He added that the insurgents must have
specifically chosen Monday, as they were
aware that Monday and Thursday were the
market days in Biu, the headquarters of Biu
Local Government.
