Twin Male Suicide Bombers Kill
Themselves And A Soldier In Borno


Twin male suicide bombers
suspected to be members of Boko
Haram sect, Tuesday evening,
detonated their explosives at a check
point around the Gomari Airport
Round- About killing a soldier
including themselves.
This explosion is coming barely 12
hours when twin suicide bombers
struck in neighbouring Damaturu,
the Yobe state capital where 6 people
including the suicide bombers lost
their lives with 26 injured.
Gomari is a populated community of
Jere Local Government Area of Borno
state which is part of Maiduguri
The explosion which shook the
vicinity also injured 4 passersby at
about 10:22pm when the curfew
time of 9:30 imposed on the city of
Maiduguri had elapsed.
Sources said, the suicide bombers
were riding on a tricycle after the
curfew hours, and when they were
asked to stop and park by the
military and some of the civilian JTF
members who were on patrol at the
checkpoint, they immediately
complied by the order.
The source said after they (suicide
bombers) parked and both alighted
from their tricycle, they were asked
to come closer to one of the military
personnel to identify themselves,
unfortunately, when they
approached the soldier and some of
the civilian JTF members, one of the
suicide bomber detonated his
Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs)
strapped to his body killing
themselves, while the soldier who
was critically injured died before
reaching hospital for treatment.
