The Nigerian Army has said detonating the Improvised Explosive Device (IED) planted by Boko Haram forces is one of its major challenges in anti-insurgency operation in the North East region.

Commander of Army Engineer Corps, Major General John Amalu, made this known at the West Africa social activities of the army in Lagos.

He explained that identifying the improvised explosive devices planted by the insurgents is a major task for the engineer corps.

”IEDs remain a threat in the North East and that is very challenging for the Army as that falls squarely on the Nigerian Army Engineers,” Amalu said.
