The Public Relations Officer of the command, DSP Victor Isuzu, in a statement, said that another boy was wounded in the incident.

Isuzu said that the incident, which affected two teenagers, occurred on Saturday at Delti village in Jere Local Government Council of the state.

“The explosion affected two boys, Gambo Bukar and Umar Bukar, aged 10 and eight-year-olds, Fulani boys of Delti village in Jere local government council of the state.

“On Saturday at about 10:00 AM, they went out for grazing at Baram and Tamsongamdu villages in Mafa local government area.

“The boys came in contact with Boko Haram insurgents. One of them was strapped with an IED vest and set free.

“They returned home at about 4:00 p.m. and failed to disclose their encounter with the terrorists.

“In the process of unstrapping the vest, the IED exploded killing Gambo Bukar alone,” Isuzu said, adding that the other boy sustained injuries and was hospitalised.
