A suicide Bomber who was trying to cause havoc irreparable inside an Internally Displaced Persons camp, has been given a taste of his own medicine.
The Suicide bomber was gunned down
Soldiers in Maiduguri have s**t dead a suspected Boko Haram suicide bomber.
Officials said the suspect was s**t dead after he was spotted trying to creep into the same IDP camp that nearly came under attack by a female suicide bomber who k****d herself and five others on Saturday morning.
The suicide bomber was s**t dead by vigilant soldiers who opened fire on him causing one of the two bombs around his body to go off.
Saturday and Sunday’s incidents appear to indicate that the insurgents have made internally displaced persons, IDP, camps a major point of target.
According to Premium Times, a top leader of the Civilian-JTF, Alhaji Dan-Batta, revealed on phone that “the male suicide bomber was seen loitering around the back perimeter fence of Bakassi camp at about 9 a.m. He was s**t down before he could advance closer to the camp. One of the bombs he was carrying exploded, but another is still strapped on his body did not explode. The anti-bomb squad operatives are trying to defuse that one”.
No other person was reported k****d or injured from the explosion.
The incident did not cause any panic in the Borno capital as many residents were seen going about their daily businesses.
Sunday’s blast came as the fifth in the series of bomb attacks around Maiduguri by the Boko Haram in the last three weeks.
Since the release of 21 of the abducted Chibok schoolgirls three weeks ago, Boko Haram insurgents have scaled up their hostility mainly using improvised explosives.
The federal government had said it will be going into another round of negotiations with the insurgents with a view to securing the release of more of the girls. Despite that, the Boko Haram have continued with their terror attacks.
Neither the military nor the police have issued any statement on Sunday’s incident at the time of filing this report.
