Mosque massacre averted in Maiduguri as two female suicide bombers die in dawn attack
Worshippers at the mosque located after the Federal High Court, effectively blocked the dark angels of death from entering the mosque at about 5.21 a.m
One of the bombers in frustration detonated her vest, killing herself and her bomber colleague. Five of the worshippers were however injured. The injured were first administered with first aid.
The injured were rushed to the Maiduguri Specialist Hospital, while the remains of the suicide bombers were equally evacuated by SEMA, said deputy superintendent of Police Isuku Victor, the PPRO Borno.
The second sound was the blast from the unexploded IED from the second explosion, which was detonated by the command’s EOD team at the scene.
