suicide bomb vestWhat could have been a tragedy was averted by vigilant troops early hours of Monday as they shot and killed two Boko Haram female suicide bombers attempting to attack Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Monguno, Borno State.

The third female suicide bomber, who took a different route, detonated her explosives killing only herself before troops’ deployment in the area, the Nigerian Army said.

A statement by the Army spokesman, Sani Usman, said two attackers targeting IDPs fetching water at a borehole located about three kilometers on the outskirts of Monguno town along Marte road, were killed by vigilante troops.

Mr. Usman, a Colonel said: “Unfortunately, the explosive they were strapped with exploded and injured two civilians nearby. The injured persons have been evacuated and are receiving medical attention at the 8 Task Force Division’s medical facility”.

He added that “the third suicide bomber that followed a different route, detonated some distance, before troops deployment along the same road at about 7.10am”.

Col. Usman said troops have cordoned off the general area and imposed restriction of movement into Monguno while they are in the general area to make it safe.
