The Borno state command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) says it has discovered “Count down timers” being used by Boko Haram insurgents to detonate explosives.

Ibrahim Abdullahi, commandant of the corps, disclosed this in Maiduguri, the state capital, during an interview with NAN.

Abdullahi said the instruments were discovered in Kalari area of Maiduguri, scene of Sunday’s bomb blast.

“The digital timer countdown displayed served the purpose of allowing the planter of bomb or suicide bomber to know the time to explode his improvised explosive device,” he said.

“Since we now know what they are using, the security agencies would trace the roots of where these gadgets are coming from.

“To this end, we appeal to people to be vigilant and proactive in their respective environment. They should also assist the security agencies with relevant information to nip Boko Haram activities and other crimes in the bud.”
