A suicide bomb attack by Boko Haram terrorists was today foiled by the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Special Forces in conjunction with some Nigerian Army troops. The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) says its Special Forces, in conjunction with some Nigerian Army troops, successfully foiled a suicide bombing attack by Boko Haram Terrorists (BHTs) at the University of Maiduguri, Borno on Sunday night.
AVM Olatokunbo Adesanya, NAF’s Director of Public Relations and Information, confirmed this in a statement on Monday in Abuja.
“Meanwhile, the vest on one of the suicide bombers detonated before they could gain access into the hostel, leading to a commotion.
“However, there was no reported fatality except for the suicide bomber, whose counterparts immediately fled, when the NAF Special Forces and the NA troops opened fire on them.
“The NAF Agusta Light Utility Helicopter (LUH) then went in pursuit of the fleeing BHTs, following which an additional suicide bomber was identified and neutralized,”
Adesanya said the NAF Agusta LUH was still searching for the other fleeing terrorists at the time of filing this report.
