Maiduguri, March 12, 2017(TNE): Security agents shot dead two suspected female suicide bombers as they attempted to enter Maiduguri through the Umarari in Molai, near Damboa Road, according to an official.

Mr Victor Isuku, spokesman for Borno Police Command, said in a statement in Maiduguri on Sunday  that the incident happened on Saturday night.

”On Saturday at about 2045hrs, two suspected female suicide bombers of about 18 years of age, attempted to enter Maiduguri through Umarari in Molai General Area, which is about 9 km to the township.

”They were sighted by local vigilantes – the Civilian JTF and were consequently shot dead by security personnel on duty at the area,” Isuku said.

He said that there was no other death recorded apart from the bombers, adding that bomb disposal specialists later neutralised the explosives. (TNE)
