Suicide-Bombers Kill Selves in failed Attack in Kaleri–NEMA
The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has confirmed multiple suicide explosions in Kaleri area of Maiduguri on Sunday by suicide-bombers.
In a brief message by the spokesperson of NEMA in Maiduguri, Abdulkadir Ibrahim, the statement stated that: “Multiple explosion rock outskirts of Maiduguri Kaleri area about 9.53pm from two male and three female suicide bombers.
“The five suicide bombers were killed and three people were injured from the incident.”
The five suicide-bombers lost their lives in a failed bid to infiltrate the community to cause maximum havoc.
The Northeast Zonal Coordinator of NEMA, Mr Bashir Garga said that the failed attack involved two females and three males, who detonated Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) strapped to their bodies, causing harm to only themselves.
The suicide bombers were apparently targeting scores of residents in Kaleri community.
Boko Haram insurgents have been terrorizing Nigerian’s expansive northeast since 2009 in an insurgency that has claimed thousands of lives and displaced millions.
The jihadists, however, appeared to have been decimated by federal troops but the insurgents have resorted to hitting soft targets intermittently.
