 Police in Borno State on Monday arrested a female suicide bomber near an Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp in Bakassi, Maiduguri.

The Police in a statement on Tuesday identified the female suicide bomber as Zara Idriss.

The statement, which was signed by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Edet Okon, explained further that suspect was successfully arrested before detonating the bomb near the IDP camp and is currently in police custody.

“On sighting the bomber, conventional policemen alongside their EOD counterparts swung into action and cordoned off the area to prevent escape of the bomber into the city.

As a result, the suspect, one Zara Idriss was rendered safe, arrested and is now held in custody,” the statement read in part.

The Commissioner of Police in Borno State, therefore, asked members of the public to go about their activities without fear and to promptly report any suspicious movement around them to the police or other security agencies.

A village on the outskirts of Maiduguri, the Borno State capital was recently attacked by suicide bombers.

The attack, which occurred last month, saw four attackers infiltrating Muna Zawiya village in Mafa Local Government before detonating their explosives. One person was killed and injuring 18 others were injured in the attack.

A frequent target for the suicide bombers in Borno State home is noted to be IDPs – home to many people displaced by the violence.

In January, at least 12 people were killed and 48 others injured at the Muna Garage in Maiduguri, when two suicide bombers attacked it. (Channels TV)
