PostSubject: BREAKING: Again, Maiduguri targeted in multiple suicide attack   2016-11-18, 17:08



Three suicide bombers suspected to be Boko Haram members have attempted to hit the Federal High Court in Jidari Polo area of Maiduguri, the Borno state capital on November 18, Friday.

According to Sahara Reporters, the bombers could not do much harm as Nigerian police contingent stationed in a Catholic church nearby killed the attackers made up of a male and two females before they could impose damage to anybody.
The sources noted that one of the bombers, a female took off her suicide vest and ran towards the security operatives with her hands raised and was caught alive.

The attacker then set off her bomb which killed her male partner.

Police officers in the state told journalists that only the suicide bombers died in the attack.

The female bomber on the team who surrendered has been arrested and taken into custody by the Nigerian army.

Before the Nigerian troops recapture Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state was epicentre of the Boko Haram insurgency,

Boko Haram has frequently used female and child suicide bombers to mount their attacks, particularly in the past year, as a Nigerian and regional military crackdown has stripped the group of the territory it once held.
