Gallant Nigerian soldiers have stormed a discreet weapon-making factory in the North-East owned by suspected members of the Boko Haram sect.
Troops of 21 Brigade Nigerian Army, while on offensive operations on Boko Haram terrorists location, with the support from the Nigerian Airforce discovered and destroyed the terrorists’ Improvised Explosive Device (IED) and Rocket making factory along Bama-Gonin Kurmi within the outskirts of Bama town, Borno State, SaharaReporters reports.
The items recovered includes gas cylinders, welding machine, pipes and poles. Others include locally made rocket shells, plenty of assorted chemicals, unprimed IEDs and various technical and laboratory equipment suspected to be stolen from schools’ laboratories around Bama before they were dislodged from the area.
