Troops of Operation Lafiya Dole deployed around Gamboru Ngala in Borno State have averted what the military said would have been a devastating suicide attack.
The operation’s spokesman, Colonel Onyema Nwachukwu said three female Boko Haram members attempted to bomb the twin towns.
Two of the bombers, strapped with suicide vests attempted to infiltrate Gamboru town but were stopped by a joint patrol team of troops and civilian JTF. Their vests were safely unstrapped and detonated.
A third bomber was later intercepted around the same area.
