A security source told Daily Trust that an AK-47 rifle was discovered inside the house, along with two other IEDs that were later defused by the Anti-bomb squad.
“The man’s body was mutilated due to the explosive device, while his wife and children were taken away by DSS officials in their vehicles,” the source said.
Confirming the incident was a community leader, Malam Samaila, who said that the security operatives had barricaded the street to prevent people from approaching the suspect’s house.
He added that it was likely that the security personnel had tracked down the suspect to his residence to arrest him.
The operation was jointly conducted by the DSS, police, and soldiers, who arrived in Hilux trucks, Jeeps, and ambulances. They left the community at approximately noon.
