A statement issued and signed by DSP Isuku Victor, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), in Maiduguri, said eight people sustained injuries in the incident.

Victor said that the incident occurred on Friday at about 17:38 p.m. when the female suicide bombers detonated IEDs against a taxi on Maiduguri-Mafa Highway.

“Two female suicide bombers detonated IEDs against a taxi on Maiduguri-Mafa road, close to the National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) checkpoint in the outskirt of Maiduguri.
