Operatives of the Joint Military Task Force (JTF) in Kano State yesterday arrested four terrorists, including an improvised explosive devices (IEDs) specialist during two separate raids in Kano metropolis.

The JTF operatives also stormed a residence at Gaida Ajawa along Kano western by pass used as an armoury by the terrorists and uncovered six AK-47 riffles, 15 hands held IEDs, 189 rounds of ammunition.

According to a statement made available to journalists by the JTF revealed that items recovered included 11 bags of fertilizer, 200 empty containers of assorted beverage drinks, wires and other materials for making IEDs.

The statement signed by the JTF spokesman, Captain Ikedichi Iweha, revealed that other items recovered from the suspects were one FN riffle, one general purpose machine gun (GPMG), one SMG riffle, one pump action riffle and one PPK pistol magazine, two smoke guns, 43 rounds of 5.56mm SMG ammunition, two containers of liquid chemical substances and eight rounds of 9mm ammunition for PKK pistol.

The statement revealed that: “Earlier this afternoon, the IEDs manufacturing specialist for the terrorists network in Kano was also arrested at a farm centre.

“You may have observed that there has been a rise in recent times of activities of terrorists in the state.

“This may not be unconnected with the influx of terrorists fleeing from Maiduguri, Damaturu, Potiskum and other havens of terrorists as a result of pressure being mounted on them by the JTF operatives in these areas.”
The JTF also decried the fact that the terrorists secured accommodation easily in Panshekara, Ja’en, Mariri, Farawa, Hotoro, Sharada and other outskirts areas in the state despite appeals to property owners to desist from renting their properties to terrorists.

“JTF in Kano will not allow the state to be a haven for terrorists. These having fallen on deaf ears, we would go a step further in not only destroying any property which is found to accommodate terrorists but will also arrest the owners of such properties, treating them as accomplices even if they do not reside in the said properties,” the statement added.

The JTF further warned terrorists that it would unleash its full weight and might on any terror network anywhere they are traced within Kano and its environs, assuring them that they will not rest on its oars in ensuring the safety of the good people of the state and their interests.
