The Nigerian Police has successfully disarmed two bombs at a refugee camp sited in a girls secondary school in Maiduguri and arrested two suspected members of the terrorist group, Boko Haram who are allegedly behind the attempted bombing.
A member of a militia group that collaborates with security operatives, Isa Mohammed confirmed this to Bloomberg in a phone interview yesterday, 14th March.
The explosives were sighted at the camp and police were quickly alerted; they came and defused them.
Boko Haram has been a menace to Nigeria killing thousands and displacing more from their homes. The Nigerian government has been forced to agree to a joint military effort from its neighbours, including Chad, Niger and Cameroun. Apart from the lives lost, the activities of the terrorist group has negatively affected the second term ambition of President Goodluck Jonathan who is being challenged by General Muhammadu Buhari, a former military Head of State.
