Three suicide bombers, two females and a male, on Friday struck in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, with one detonating a bomb when intercepted by security personnel.

The spokesman of the police, Victor Isuku, told our correspondent that the incident happened at 3:50am at Jiddari Polo area of the troubled town.

He said: “By 3:50am today, mobile police personnel on guard duty opposite the Federal High Court, Jiddari Polo area of Maiduguri, sighted three suspected suicide bombers (two females & a male) running towards their sandbag. They ordered them to a halt for questioning. In the process, one of them detonated the IED strapped to her body, killing herself and one other male accomplice.

“The other female survivor was arrested alive and subsequently handed over to the military for further explanation and necessary follow-up actions.”

He added: “Police bomb disposal unit also mobilized to the scene to (defuse) unexploded IEDs on the bodies of the deceased suicide bombers.”

Isuku who revealed that there were two explosions, stated: “The second bang was as a result of the demolition of the remaining IEDs by police EOD units.”

He however said: “Normalcy has already been restored.”

      We have killed Osama and defeated terrorist group many years ago in Afghanistan. We lost 4 brave soldiers a week ago in the country through suicide bombers, As far as this group have been technically defeated. We do not jubilate when the terrorist attack our citizens unlike some of you people from SE Nigeria.

        Yinka, you are sick!!, where you not one of those that were supporting the apc propaganda machine and supported in the sabotage of Jonathan’s government in the fight against boko haram. Now preaching crap. Hypocrite.

    Can’t you jihadists pity your oga for once? He claimed he had defeated you. Can’t you pretend for a while that you were defeated so as to save his job. He has been boasting of defeating you guys everywhere he goes. His only ‘accomplishment’ so far. Help him, please. He doesn’t know what to tell his American masters, more so with Trump staring menacingly at his lean, mean and hungry face. When they created boko haram they never in their wildest dreams thought the outcome would be what they are facing today. The plan was to make Nigeria ungovernable for Jonathan by attacking and killing Ibos and other Christians in the far north. When unfortunately the few surviving Ibos ran away, the ‘sweet’ smell of human blood was so strong that they, boko haram, didn’t know how to stop the barbarism. The outcome is the hell they are going through today. Who will bell the cat? All our resources are being wasted in fighting a needless, avoidable war. Whatever is remaining is expended on the so called IDPs. He wants to borrow a whooping 30 billion dollars to execute his war and take acre of his IDPs and thereafter we shall all pay back the loan. Thunder fire his teeth. Thank God the NASS roundly rejected his request. Shege banza.

      I don’t know why some Nigerians are happy when issue of concern are on the headline. you are blind completely on what these evil people stands for and what people around those areas are passing through, that’s why you talk with no respect. Before, was it only in Maiduguri that you here of all these killings? If they are not technically defeated why are they not spreading their tentacles to other states as they use to. Please, when it comes to the matter of security, we should not be running our mouth too much.
