Nigerian troops in Adamawa state on Wednesday foiled a fresh suicide attack at Kubla village in the Mdagali local government area of the state.
In a telephone interview, the commander of t28 Task Force Brigade headquarters, Mubi, Brigadier- General V.O. Ezeugwu, confirmed it, saying that his men intercepted a middle-aged woman with an improvised explosive device (IED).
Ezeugwu said she concealed the device in her hand bag, while heading to the market in Gubula village “to accomplish her evil mission.”
The commander revealed that after foiling the attack, the army quickly condoned off the area and discovered hidden explosive devices.
Ezeugwu, therefore, appealed to residents to continue to give useful information to security operatives to aid operatives in their quest to crush the insurgents.
He also said four Boko Haram suspects who were on a suicide bombing mission to Kubla were ambushed and killed by government troops.
