Army Generals escape IED blast in Borno


Two Army Generals at the weekend escaped death after encountering a hidden Improvised Explosive Devices (IED), planted by suspected Boko Haram terrorists along Banki Junction- Pulka road in Borno state. The Chief of Administration (Army), Major General IM Alkali and the Acting General Officer Commanding 7 Division Nigerian Army, Brigadier General Victor O Ezugwu were on operational visit to troops of 26 Task Force Brigade deployed for Operation LAFIYA DOLE currently engaged in Operation DEEP PUSH when their convoy encountered and cleared four IEDs buried by suspected elements of Boko Haram terrorists along their way from Bama to Gwoza on Saturday.

The four clustered IEDs were buried at a crossing point along Banki Junction and Pulka road, about 6 kilometres to Firgi in Borno State.

The Explosive Ordinance Device team were however able to quickly detect the deadly IEDs and safely extracted and detonated them.
