Following  intelligence report saying that some Boko Haram members might infiltrate the UN building, the Nigerian  Army today conducted  a search at a building used by staff of the United Nation staff in Maiduguri in Borno State.  A statement released by the spokesperson, 7 Division of the Nigerian Army, Lt. Col. Samuel Kingsley,  reads in part

“On 10th August 2017, the Theatre Command received information from credible sources that some high profiled Boko Haram insurgents infiltrated into Pompomari-ByePass area of Maiduguri. It therefore became expedient to take pre-emptive action by combing the general area through a cordon and search operations. The operation was successfully conducted as over 30 houses were searched. One of such building included a property which was said to be occupied by United Nations Staff, although the property did not carry a UN designation. On the whole, operation in the general area was successfully concluded but no arrest was made because the suspects were not found,” Kingsley said
