“The suicide bombers were chased by security personnel in the ensuing stampede and in an attempt to escape arrest, the suicide bombers hurriedly detonated the IEDs strapped on their bodies killing themselves,” he said.
“However, two members of the security personnel sustained injuries and were rushed to University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital.
“Police and EOD personnel visited the scene to secure and render the area safe.” A witness, Mr. Amin Audu, said the insurgents took advantage of the night to gain access into Maiduguri.
“The powerful blast also made the explosives strapped to the other ladies to detonate and blew them into pieces,” he said.
