Troops Foil Suicide Attack in Adamawa

The Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Col. Sani Usman, has said that Nigerian soldiers in Adamawa State on Saturday morning foiled a suspected suicide attack and shot dead the suspected bomber near a military base.
The suicide bomber, according to Usman, was armed with an improvised explosives device, which he wore around his body when he was spotted advancing towards a military base in Madagali village of Adamawa State.
When troops noticed him he was beckoned on to stop but refused. The troops were left with no other option than to open fire on the suspect when he kept advancing towards them.
“The vigilant troops of Operation LAFIYA DOLE today morning intercepted and neutralized a male suicide bomber at Madagali, Adamawa State.
“The suicide bomber was spotted by a vigilant duty sentry attempting to infiltrate troops forward defensive line along Madagali-Limankara road.
“He 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 Saturday.
The attempted suicide attack is coming after two days of the release of 21 abducted Chibok girls over two years they were abducted.
