Suicide bombers kill seven in Maiduguri




Seven persons have been killed in suicide attacks at two separate locations in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

In one of the attacks, a female suicide bomber lost her life when she prematurely detonate an explosive strapped on her body upon being accosted by some vigilantes.



The terrorist died alone, while two other suspected female suicide bombers who seemed to be on the same mission with her, chickened out and took to their heels.

But they were gunned down by the vigilantes before they could escape.

In the second attack, which took place on the outskirts of Maiduguri, a suicide bomber detonated an explosive which claimed the lives of three persons.

The police spokesperson in Borno State, Murtala Ibrahim,  in a message to journalists, said, “Today (Monday) at about 0510hrs, three female suicide bombers with IED strapped to their bodies,  attempted to infiltrate Mamanti Village in Jere Local Government Area. They were intercepted by the civilian JTF.

“In the process, one of the suicide bombers detonated the IED strapped to her body, killing only herself. The other two tried to escape but were shot dead by security personnel on duty. The command EOD personnel were promptly drafted to the scene to sanitise and render the area safe.

“Again at about 0730hrs, another suicide bomb incident was foiled at Mainari Kanuri Village along Damboa/Biu Road on the outskirts of Maiduguri town.

“A suspected Boko Haram terrorist, disguised as a cart pusher, was intercepted by residents of the community. He detonated the IED on his cart, killing himself and three nearby civilians, while two other civilians sustained injuries.


“Both  scenes have since been rendered safe and normalcy has been restored.”

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
