At Least six persons  were killed in Borno  when a transport vehicle drove over a hidden explosive planted by Boko Haram terrorists.

 

The incident occurred on a rural road between Bama to Kawuri in Konduga Local Government Area, where civilians  routinely traveled to other parts of the state.

 

Sources said that the  attack was coordinated by Alhaji Ari Hajja Fusam, the Amir Jaysh of the  Jamā'at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da'wah wa'l-Jihād, from Gaizuwa camp, located few kilometers from the scene of the attack. 

 

Zagazola Makama, a Counter Insurgency Expert and Security Analyst in the Lake Chad region understands that one of the vehicles, a Toyota starlet returning from Adamawa state stepped on the bomb, killing five passengers on board.

 

The driver who was severely injured later passed away one hour later in a hospital in Maiduguri. 

 

The Road between Bama to Konduga has been very peaceful as it has not witnessed any attack in the last 6 years until now when the insurgents decided to plant bombs on the road.
