The exchange of fire that ensued resulted in the death of five terrorists, while two that sustained various degrees of injuries are being treated. In line with our resolve to deter terrorists, the building housing the factory was demolished this morning.”

He said another bomb-making factory was discovered at a house located off Makarfi Road, and the following items recovered:
1. Five Mark 4 rifles
2. Three Pump Action Riffles.
3. Twenty Rolls of Detonating Cords.
4. Twenty One 9’ Volt Batteries.
5. Two Remote Switches.
6. One Testing Metre.
7. Five assorted Daggers and Jackknives.
8. One Firing Cable and other Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) materials.

Commending the cooperation of the public, Col. Usman reiterated the resolve of JTF to fight terrorism in this country.

“We wish to inform the general public that whatever we are doing is aimed at ensuring that there is peace in Kaduna State as well as taking necessary steps in safeguarding the lives and properties of law-abiding citizens.”

He urged the public to continue to report any suspicious movement, establishments or persons in their environment, stressing that all such information received will be treated with absolute confidentiality.

Out of minded People

Really Nigeria is a pool room made by Christian. I want to ask Mr nobody does Nigeria turned to be Christian Coutry that is why you want all Muslim to parish from the land? Where is the so-call unity if agents of satanic are killing the Peaceful people. Terrorism, kidnapping, abduction and many other evil acts starts from the children of whitemam's slaves; shamelessly calling the peaceful land/people terrorist. JTF go ahead killing innocent people simply they are Muslim and Northers for the next 2015 election southerners to muntiply us and makes cowboy to be re-elected.

Re-JTF kill 5 Boko Haram

@9jaboy, are you saying Boko Haram is synanimoues to Islam or will destruction of Boko Haram will amount to destroying Islam?

Re-Good comment

If the security Agencies and Federal Government copuld not mention Boko Haram members, why not assist Nigerians by expossing their names and address and let us see whether Nigerian Government will not act then we will know you are patriotic.since you know their class, don't waste time to contribute your own qouta to the process of bringing peace to your father land.

Good comment. This really

Good comment. This really makes people suspicious that the sponsors are the foriegn and local untouchables. The President once claimed to know them, but nobody bother to press him to mention them. Only a fool can believe that up to now SSS and other operatives do not know who the sponsors are. They have both high and low profile members in their custodies. Would they tell us that they could not squeeze out information from them? If that is the case, they don't deserve their salaries. We are only governed by useless people that only mind their own business. If the authority is reluctant to expose them, God will surely expose them soon.

About 80 percent of the

About 80 percent of the successes recorded by JTF were through information from public. This is enough to understand that the Northern population is not supporting BH. Facts are emerging that most of the BH members are not even citizens of Nigeria. Last week 12 foriegners were arrested in Kano only. Please christians take note that we are with you and we are committed to reporting all suspicious persons because they are blackpainting our religion. May God deal with them.

Alhamdulillahi

Am so happy with the well wishers. I pray that Almighty ALLAH keep on exposing them till they are wipped out from this country. ALLAH protect all the good once among us, Ameen.

ALL HAIL JTF!!

Thanks to the men of the JTF. What a splendid Xmas present! Some infidels dispatched to their forlorn hell to seek for elusive and laughable virgins. LOLZ.

Well done, JTF jare!

@9jahboy

The head of the Boko Haram insurgency are no other than your Christian leaders personafied by Goodluck supporter Prof Jerry Gana. They are guided by U.S Ambassador to Nigeria while frence contrivutes with territories in Chad and Cameroun. All efforts to destroy Islam.

Well done

It's a kudos deserved job on the part of JTF. A well done job! But it's not over, there are still more terrorists around the corner carrying out their evil acts in the name of religion. Be vigilant and Allah will continue to be your source of guidance. More greese to your elbow. One Nigeria!

ta ta ta

Five less hungry mallams to be fed. The other two should be used to detonate the found IEDS. Oh happy day..... All sing along.

kudos 2 d well-meaning

kudos 2 d well-meaning informant

IF YOU WANT TO KILL A SNAKE YOU MUST CUT OFF THE HEAD

JTF HAS TO BE COMMENDED FOR THE GOOD JOB THEY ARE DOING, WE ALL KNOW THAT IT IS NOT EASY! HOWEVER, THERE IS STILL LOTS OF ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT. SO FAR IT SEEMS LIKE ATTENTION IS BEING FOCUSED ON THE FOOT SOLDIERS;IF YOU ONLY KILL THE FOOT SOLDIERS NEW ONES WOULD BE RECRUITED AND REGROUP! THEY SAY IF YOU WANT TO KILL A SNAKE YOU MUST CUT OFF THE HEAD! ITS TIME TO START CUTTING OFF THE HEADS OF THIS WICKED ORGANIZATION IF WE TRULY WANT TO SEE AN END TO THESE EVIL ACTIVITIES
