The Borno Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) yesterday said it had discovered ‘’count down timers’’ used by Boko Haram terrorists to detonate explosives.

The Commandant, Mr. Ibrahim Abdullahi, in Maiduguri told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the instruments were discovered by men of the disaster management unit of the command at the scene of Sunday’s bomb blast in Kalari area of the state capital.

“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.

“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.’’
