Another attack bomber explosion in Maiduguri that has claims the life of 10 worshippers in the early hours of Monday after a female suicide bomber attacked a mosque in Maiduguri, Borno state.
The worshippers went for their morning prayers when the suicide bomber struck in.
The attack comes barely a day after a ten-year-old Fulani boy herding cattle was killed while his 8 years old younger brother sustained injuries in an explosion from a suicide bomb belt forcefully strapped around the elder’s body by suspected Boko Haram insurgents.
From Hitzng the police has stated that the two under aged kids, Gambo Bukar and Umar Bukar, ran into Boko Haram insurgents while they were grazing their animals on Saturday.
The insurgents caught them and forcefully strapped a suicide bomb belt on the elderly kid with a warning that it must not be removed until they got back home.
The Borno State police spokesperson, Victor Isukwu. stated “The incident happened yesterday 15/7/2017, at about 1000hrs when two boys, Gambo Bukar and Umar Bukar, aged 10 and 8yrs respectively, Fulani by tribe, of Dalti village in Jere LGA, outskirt of Maiduguri, went out for grazing at Baram and Tamsongamdu villages in Mafa LGA,”
They came in contact with Boko Haram terrorists elements. Gambo Bukar was strapped with IED vest and set free.
He further added that “They returned home at about 1600hrs of same day, and failed to disclose their encounter with the terrorists. In the process of unstrapping the vest, the IED exploded killing Gambo Bukar alone, while Umar Bukar sustained injuries and was hospitalised.”
