Security operatives have arrested one suicide bomber and killed another in a foiled attempt to attack the Molai area of Maiduguri, according to the Borno State Police Command.

The security operatives sighted the suicide bombers behind the NNPC Mega filling station in the area, while attempting to infiltrate Maiduguri town.

A statement by the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Victor Isuku, revealed that the girls, estimated to be about 18 years of age, were intercepted by security personnel on duty.

“One was arrested and the other one was shot dead.

“The EOD personnel were quickly drafted to the scene and rendered the area safe,” Isuku stated.

Suicide Bomber Detonates IED

It appears insurgents are focused on Maiduguri relating to their heinous operations with recent incidents of explosions.

A week ago, a suicide bomber detonated an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) at the Dalori quarters in Maiduguri, Borno State, an incident that was confirmed by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).

Similarly, the Civilian Joint Task Force reported that the explosion occurred after a suicide bomber stormed the Dalori quarters mosque in the early hours of Tuesday, during the morning prayers, killing one of their members and a male suicide bomber.
