KDF High-Tech Tool Help Them Recover Deadly Explosive Al-Shabaab Had Planted In Kenya

Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) successfully detonated a deadly explosive device that suspected al-Shabaab militants had planted on Kenyan soil, targeting to inflict the military with pain.

According to reliable sources, al-Shabaab had planted the deadly explosives on Kenya Defence Forces' main supply route (MSR) at BP-27 near Hassan Kohoti within Boni Forest, in Lamu County.

KDF reportedly used the non-linear junction detector or an NLJD to uncover the explosive device the militants had planted on the road.

For starters, a non-linear junction detector is an indispensable tool for the quick and reliable detection of devices containing semiconductor components.

It can be used for counter-surveillance search works on-premises as well as for the location of explosive devices outdoors.

"On 13th January, a Kenya Army (KDF) 'combat ready' border patrol unit successfully detonated (Non-Linear junction detection: Standoff at Detection Range) a terrorist IED emplaced on their MSR at BP-27 near Hassan Kohoti (Boni AOR)," read the update from the source.

The recovery and detonating of the deadly explosive comes a few weeks after one KDF soldier died and 4 others sustained injuries in Lamu after their vehicle ran over an IED that al-Shabaab planted on their road.
