The Chief bomb maker of Boko Haram terrorists has been shot dead, the Nigerian Army says.

In a statement by the Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Col Sani Usman, the chief bomb maker was killed by one of the terrorists as he attempted to escape from the group, just as some of the terrorists have been doing, because of the intensity of Operation CRACKDOWN launched by the military.

The chief bomber, who was not named, is one of the sect's experts  in making Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs).

"In a related development, one Julelebeeb who was appointed to take over is now completely blind because his two eyes were shattered by shrapnel, in the process of preparing an IED to consolidate his appointment," the statement said.


According to Usman, the blind state of Julelebeeb has dealt a devastating blow on the terrorists' capacity on IED preparation, suicide bombing and their ability to sustain their criminal acts.
