Two Female Bombers Die In Borno Accidental Explosion

Two female suicide bombers were on Sunday blew apart when the Improvised Explosive Devices, strapped on them, accidentally detonated.
The blast occurred at  Auno village in the Konduga Local Government Area of Borno State, a distance of about 15 kilometers away from Maiduguri, the state capital.

The suicide bombers, who were believed to be on a suicide mission to Maiduguri’s Monday Market, when the IEDs blew them apart in Auno town while waiting for a bus.
An eyewitness, Gana Bukar, who explained that the incident occurred at about 2pm on Sunday, said the bombs  scattered the bodies of the suicide bombers, while seven other persons were injured and were rushed to Maiduguri General Hospital for treatment.
He said, “The suicide bombers were said to have been brought from Damaturu by one suspected Boko Haram terrorist, who dropped them in Jajana and told them to take a bus to the next town. On reaching Auno, they thought it was Maiduguri and they start asking about Maiduguri Monday Market.
“We were told that their master dropped them in Jakana because he knew that it would be very difficult for them to beat security checkpoints and enter Maiduguri.”
A taxi driver, Mallam Mohammdu Abor, who claimed that drove through Auno on Sunday afternoon, told journalists that he saw the mangled bodies of the suicide bombers by the roadside.
He said the people of the town were standing at a distance from the bodies as they were apprehensive that they might still have undetonated explosives on them.
Speaking on the matter, the spokesman for the youth vigilance group in Borno State, Jibrin Gunda, said he was informed about the incident, adding that his men had intensified their stop-and-search mission.
