Kudos to these gallant Nigerian troops fighting boko haram insurgents in the Northeastern part of the country for quickly spotting and successfully detonating this particular IED. This is one of the methods in which the dreaded Islamic insurgents use in sending our soldiers to their early graves.
The terrorists plant IEDs along the paths of Nigerian Soldiers, hoping that they’ll step on it, paving the way for a direct ambush.
This time is different as gallant troops intelligently spotted and disarmed the bomb.
