The Joint Task Force (JTF) in Yobe State
capital, Damaturu, is now using sniffer
dogs to detect specially concealed arms and nitrate based materials used in the making of improvised explosive devices at checkpoints.

In a chat with Daily Trust yesterday, the JTF spokesman, Eli Lazarus said the JTF took the decision based on information that there are plans by the Boko Haram group to smuggle arms into the state, and cause mayhem.

“We have to keep evolving new methods according to the dictates of the time to remain ahead of terrorists. And in so doing, we have to employ all the resources at our disposal to ensure we achieve the set objective

“The JTF encourages members of the public to always report to security agents any unusual occurrence or activities of suspected persons in their localities for prompt action. It should be known that every citizen has the obligation of contributing towards the security of the nation. Peace is the only way Yobe State can develop,” he said.
