Two female suicide bombers on Monday blew themselves up in Tsamiya village in Madagali area of Adamawa State.

Residents said the teenage girls sneaked in to the village but did not reach their targets when suspecting members of a hunt‎ers group tried to intercept them.

The Secretary General of Adamawa branch of the Nigeria Hunters Association, Garba Tarfa, confirmed the incident to newsmen in Yola.

“Our men spotted them around Tsamiya area trying to enter the town but when they were shouted to stop with guns pointing at them, one of them decided to detonate and they both died,” Tarfa said.

Tarfa attributed frequent attacks in the remote villages to lack of military presence, calling on the authorities to deploy adequate number of soldiers to Madagali area.

“There is no military presence in remote villages of Madagali and the insurgents are cashing on that to launch attacks from time to time. Last week they attacked Wagga village where we repelled them and captured three of them who are brought to Yola,” Tarfa said.

The ‎ Army spokesperson at the 28 Task Force Battalion in Mubi, Major Badare Akintoye, denied knowledge of the attack, saying he would get back to our reporter when he confirmed from military officers in the area.
