Suicide bombing has reduced drastically in Borno, others- Chief of Army staff says


Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai says suicide bombing in Borno and other parts of the North have reduced drastically. According to Buratai, the military has identified a major location of the suicide bombers and destroyed it. The Army chief said this in an interview over the weekend.
“By and large, I tell you suicide bombing has been reduced drastically. In the last three days, there has been no Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) attack or suicide attacks and this, we hope it will continue. They may decide to come but we are able to take out one key area that we are even suspecting, our troops were able to clear them in conjunction with other security agencies. I won’t say at this stage that we have been able to make breakthroughs in respect of suicide bombing, but we have made substantial progress and we hope it will be sustained"he said.
