Female Suicide Bomber Kills 5 At IDPs Camp In Maiduguri


Six people were killed and 39 others injured in a suicide attack Wednesday night in Maiduguri.

A suspected Boko Haram female suicide bomber infiltrated the Dalori Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camp in the city of Maiduguri and detonated an explosive device, killing herself and five other people, Satomi Ahmad, head of the State Emergency Management Agency confirmed to reporters late on Wednesday.

Minutes after the first attack, a second bomber launched another suicide attack, which caused no casualties or any fatalities when she blew herself up into pieces, according to Satomi Ahmad.

The Boko Haram militant group has stepped up its campaign of suicide bombing using girls, usually veiled, to hit soft targets in its enclave of Nigeria’s northeast.
