– Troops intercept a suspected male suicide bomber in Madagali, Adamawa state

– The suicide bomber was gunned down as he failed to stop when told to

Troops of Operation Lafiya Dole on Saturday, October 16, intercepted a suspected male suicide bomber in Madagali, Adamawa state.

The army spokesman, Col. Sani Usman, said this in a statement in Maiduguri.

He said: “Vigilant troops of Operation Lafiya Dole intercepted and neutralised a male suicide bomber at Madagali, Adamawa state.

“The suicide bomber was spotted by a vigilant duty sentry attempting to infiltrate troop’s forward defensive line along Madagali-Limankara road.”

He added that the suspect was gunned down by the vigilant sentry as he failed to stop when halted.

“The accurate shot also detonated the Improvised Explosive Device vest and was blown into pieces,” Usman said.

The death of the suicide bomber in Adamawa state comes just weeks after three female suicide bombers of the Boko Haram terrorists were killed in Gwoza, Borno state on Thursday, October 6, before they could carry out their mission.

It was gathered that the women attempted to force their way into troops location, but were exposed by vigilantes who suspected their dressing and the nature of the hijab they were wearing which contained IEDS.
