Daji Sani in Yola
Two female suicide bombersÂ were late MondayÂ interceptedÂ by hunters in Tsamiya area of Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa State .
The General Secretary of Adamawa branch of the Nigeria Hunters Association, Mr Garba Tarfa, who confirmed the incident to journalistsÂ in Yola said it occurred around 11a.m.
“Our men spotted them around Tsamiya area trying to enter the town but when they were shouted to stop pointing a guns at them, one of themÂ immediately detonated the bomb and they both died,” Tarfa said.
Tarfa who said he was planning to take some hunters to Wokara village in the same Madagali area to contain the activities of Boko Haram in the area,Â blamed the raising activities of Boko Haram in the remote villages ofÂ Madagali to lack of military presence in the areas
“There is no military presence inÂ the remote villages of Madagali and the insurgents are capitalising on that to launch several attacks on the locals of the areas,
“Last week, they attacked Wagga village where we repelled them and captured three of them who are brought to Yola,” Tarfa said.
Effort to get the military to comment on the developments did not yield result.
