An attempt by another set of female suicide bombers to attack a community around the University of Maiduguri was foiled by security personnel about 4am today.

“No casualty was recorded except the two female suicide bombers who died and their remains were deposited at Borno state specialist hospital by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) emergency response teams,” Abdulkadir Ibrahim, NEMA Information Officer North East, said.

There was a similar explosion last Saturday at a mosque close to Federal High Court Jiddari Polo, where the emergency response teams evacuated the bodies of two female suicide bombers believed to have died in the incident. 

Saturday’s explosion which occurred at about 5:25 a.m., affected four victims who were transported to hospital.
