Michael Olugbode in Maiduguri
Another three female suicide bombers who were on a mission to claim many other lives on Tuesday night, died in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.
It has become a common occurrence for suicide bombers detonating explosive strapped on them without recording any major â€œsuccessâ€ in recent times.
The mission went the way of the others as the three suicide bombers were only able to kill themselves without taking any other personâ€™s life in their wake.
Confirming the suicide attack on Mamanti Village in Molai area of Maiduguri, the police spokesman in the state, Victor Isuku, said the three female suicide bombers suspected to have been conveyed by motorcycle and dropped at a distance to Mamanti Village in Molai area were sighted and intercepted by vigilant security operatives.
He said: â€œToday at about 17.55hrs, three female suicide bombers, suspected to have been conveyed by motorcycle and dropped at a distance to Mamanti village in Molai area, were sighted and intercepted by vigilant security operatives.
â€œIn the process, they hurriedly detonated IED strapped to their bodies, killing themselves only. There was no civilian casualty recorded.
â€œPolice EOD teams were promptly drafted to the scene to sanitise the area, and restore normalcy.â€
