NSCDC[MAIDUGURI] – Nigerian army, and operatives of Nigeria Security & Civil Defence Corps ( NSCDC) on Saturday foiled another suicide attack in Maiduguri when it stopped three female suspected suicide bombers who attempted to gain entrance into the Borno State capital through Dala Yasara.


Two of the suicide bombers detonated their IEDs while the third person was shot dead by the soldiers as she tried to escape.

Spokesman of the National Emergency Management Agency Sani Datti, said the women blew themselves up when they were stopped for a body search by self-defense fighters on the outskirts of the city.

The morning attack is the latest in a wave of suicide bombings blamed on Boko Haram terrorists that have killed hundreds in recent months.
