It was yet another tragedy in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, on Tuesday evening as three teenage girls, all armed with explosive devices worn around their bodies, detonated their explosives as security operatives tried to stop them from entering the city.
According to a report by Premium Times, the multiple explosions reverberated across Maiduguri during the late evening rush hour forced vehicles to screech to a halt as commuters tried to figure from which area the attack may been coming.
It was gathered that it did not take more than a couple of minutes for the city to become aware that 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.

“Today at about 17:55 hours (5:55pm), three female suicide bombers, suspected to have been conveyed by motorcycle and dropped at a distance to Maranti village in Molai area, were sighted and intercepted by vigilant security operatives”, said police public relations officer, Victor Isukwu.

“In the process of intercepting them, they hurriedly detonated IED strapped to their bodies, killing themselves only,” he said, adding that “there was no civilian casualty recorded.”
Police teams were promptly drafted to the scene to sanitise the area, and restore normalcy.
