Boko Haram are buying fertilizers to make bombs - DHQ

The Nigerian Army’s Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has raised the alarm of insurgents buying fertilizers to make bombs. 


Coordinator of the Directorate of Defence Media Operations, (DDMO), Maj. Gen. John Enenche disclosed this on Friday January 15 during a media briefing on military operations from January 7 to 13.


Eneche stated that the use of fertilisers by criminal gangs threatened the security of the nation.


He said; 


“While fertilisers are majorly for agricultural purposes, the possibility of it being acquired by criminal gangs, terrorists and militants for sinister purposes cannot be disregarded as fertiliser has remained a potential component for the fabrication of explosives owing to its content of Ammonium Nitrate.

“Furthermore, fertiliser poses a security threat considering current security challenges.”
