14 killed in Maiduguri by Female suicide bombers

Three female suicide bombers in Nigeria have targeted the north-eastern city of Maiduguri, killing 14 civilians.

One of them set off her explosives at a big bus station and another at a nearby camp housing people who have fled unrest during Boko Haram’s eight-year insurgency.

The two explosions were at about 21:00 local time (20:00 GMT) on Sunday in the suburb of Muna.

A third bomber’s explosives did not go off when the others did and she ran off.

But they did subsequently explode, killing only the bomber.

No group has said it carried out the attack but the area has previously been attacked by Boko Haram suicide bombers, reports the BBC.

 

Maiduguri used to be the base for the Islamist militant group.
