The Joint Task Force (JTF) on Operation Restore Order in Borno State has commenced the detonation of five Improvised Explosive Device (IED), which it uncovered at Kaleri ward of London Chiki in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.Speaking on the issue, the Field Operation Officer of the JTF, Colonel Victor Ebhaleme, advised residents to temporarily vacate the area and come back after the detonation.He also urged residents of Maiduguri not to panic as a result of the ongoing detonation.The Field Operation Officer also said that the task force had arrested six high-profile suspected members of the Boko Haram sect, following tip-off by residents of the area, adding that, the arrest was a great achievement in recent times and an evidence that the people had started cooperating with the security outfit to fish out those terrorising Maiduguri and its environs.A resident who did not want his name in print told the Nigerian Tribune that they had been living in fear in the past two years while killing and maiming of innocent citizens by Boko Haram members continued unabated.He stated that while many people had been forced to relocate to safer areas, they had been emboldened to give information to JTF, leading to the arrest of some of the assailants.
