NSCDC uncovers Boko Haram bomb timers in Maiduguri


The Borno State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps said it has discovered “Count down Timers” used by Boko Haram terrorists to detonate explosives.

The Commandant of the corps, Mr. Ibrahim Abdullahi, said that the instruments were discovered by men of the Disaster Management Unit of the command at the scene of Sunday’s bomb blast in Kalari area of the state capital.

Abdullahi said that the digital timer countdown displayed served the purpose of allowing the planter of a bomb or suicide bomber to know the time to explode his Improvised Explosive Device, adding that efforts were ongoing by the security agencies to trace the roots of the gadgets.
