Three Boko Haram Suspects Killed in Failed Suicide Attack

Three suspected Boko Haram suicide bombers, were killed in the early hours of Sunday from explosives strapped to their bodies.
They met their Waterloo when they attempted to invade Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, in an early morning suicide attempt.
According to reports, two of the suicide bombers tried to make entry into the city through one of the known entry points near Muna Garage, a popular bus station along Maidugurui-Gamboru road.
They could not advance far into the town before some local security operatives spotted them. The bombers immediately detonated themselves to avoid being caught. No one but the two attackers died, an official said.
Borno State Police Command spokesman, Victor Isuku, said another lone suicide bomber, at the same time at a different location in the area, tried to attack civilians but was prevented by security operatives. The bomber ended up killing himself and injuring a civilian, he said.
The police spokesman said: “Today, at about 0438hrs (4.38am), two male suicide bombers detonated IED strapped to their bodies by Alhaji Bukar Gujari Filling station in Muna Garage area, Maiduguri killing themselves alone. A truck was partly damaged,” said Mr. Isuku, a deputy superintendent of police.
“Also at Dusuma village in Jere LGA, a suicide bomber detonated IED strapped on him almost at the same time, killing himself, while one person was injured by the explosion.”
