Suicide Attacks: Chief of Army Staff orders deployment of sniffer dogs in Maiduguri

The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai has ordered the deployment of military sniffer dogs in and around Maiduguri as part of efforts to checkmate incessant suicide bomb attacks in the city.

Lieutenant General Buratai gave the order on Tuesday after he inaugurated a sports complex built by 7 Division of the Nigerian Army at the Maimalari Cantonment and was named after the late Lieutenant.-Colonel U.B Umar, a commander of one of the army formations in the North-East who died in an ambush by Boko Haram terrorists in 2016.

The army chief frowned at the incessant suicide bomb attacks in the city but noted that the attacks had reduced recently.

He, however, said the attackers seemed to have found another loophole and assured that sure loophole will be blocked. He urged the troops to work hard to ensure that peace was won after winning the battle with the terrorists, adding that the North East must be kept safe.
