Three female suicide bombers die in another attack on Maidugur
Three teenage girls, all armed with explosive devices worn around their bodies, detonated their explosives at the outskirts of Maiduguri, the Borno State capital. Multiple explosions reverberated across the city, the explosions were coming from the southern flank of the city along the Maiduguri-Zambia road. The Borno State Police Command confirmed later in the night that the explosions came from the suicide bombing attacks attempted by three young girls who may have been prompted by the Boko Haram. Police teams were promptly drafted to the scene to sanitise the area, and restore normalcy.
