Nigerian Army Kill 3 Female Suicide Bombers in Borno as Troops Avert an Attack
The Nigerian Army successfully averted a bomb attack at a military location at Gwoza, Gwoza Local Government Area in Borno State, yesterday.
According to reports, three female suicide bombers were killed after they attempted to force their way into the troops’ location. They were exposed by vigilantes who suspected their dressing and the nature of the hijab they were wearing to contain IEDS.
In a statement issued by Army spokesperson, Colonel Sani Usman, the suicide bombers came through the Pulka axis and were sighted by members of the vigilante from a distance who alerted the troops about the impending attack. The women reportedly looked suspicious as they were walking awkwardly with bulging hijabs which was very distinct from other female farmers.
