The Nigerian Army Chief of Administration, Major General Idris Alkali, and the acting General Officer Commanding (GOC) 7 Division, Nigerian Army, Brigadier General Victor Ezugwu, during the weekend escaped death at the hands of Boko Haram terrorists.

The convoy of the chiefs encountered four IEDs buried by suspected Boko Haram terrorists on their way from Bama to Gwoza at about 10.00a.m. last Saturday.

“They encountered the four clustered IEDs buried at a crossing point along Banki Junction and Pulka road, about six kilometres to Firgi," Army spokesman Col. Usman Sani said in a statement.

“The Explosive Ordinance Device team however, were able to quickly detect the deadly IEDs and safely extracted and detonated them.”

“The two senior officers were on operational visit to troops of 26 Task Force Brigade deployed for Operation LAFIYA DOLE currently engaged in Operation DEEP PUNCH.”
