A man suspected to be a bomb manufacturer has been arrested in Kazuare Local Government Area of JIgawa State by the military Joint Task Force (JTF).
The JTF spokesman, Captain Ikedichi Iweha, disclosed in a statement that in addition to the arrested suspect, three women and three toddlers were rescued unhurt.
“At the end of operations, five AK 47 rifles, five magazines, and 333 rounds of 7.62mm special ammunition and various improvised explosive devices were recovered from the residence after an intensive search”.
“You may recollect that the JTF had earlier alerted members of the general public of fleeing terrorists from major theatres of operation in the North-east axis of the country to ‘cooler’ areas due to pressure being mounted on them by the on-going military operations in these areas.
“Members of the general public are once again enjoined to continue complimenting the efforts of the JTF by carrying out thorough checks on the background of persons who wish to rent properties, especially in cool zones or at the outskirt areas of major towns, adding that the 3 Brigade of the Nigerian Army in Kano would not allow its area of operational responsibility to be used as haven for terrorists.
“The appeals of the JTF will continue to be complimented with the destruction of properties, where terrorists reside in and the arrests of their owners, emphasizing the that the efforts of the JTF would not be successful without the cooperation of the residents,” he added
