The Nigerian military posted the photograph of one of the suicide bombers terminated today on their way to Maiduguri.
The troops, in conjunction with the Civilian JTF, intercepted the two female suicide bombers at about 1.20am this morning, almost 100 metres south of Umurari village, outskirts of Maiduguri.
However, one of the suicide bombers on sighting Nigerian troops detonated her explosive device, killing herself instantly, while the second bomber in an attempt to escape was gunned down by one of the Garrison snipers.
The combined team of Nigeria Police and Nigerian Army’s Explosive Ordinance Device team safely detonated the unexploded Improvised Explosive Devices strapped on the gunned down suicide bomber.
