52 Female Suicide Bombers Reportedly on the Loose in Maiduguri




A total of 52 female suicide bombers are reportedly on the loose in Maiduguri, Borno State.

ThisDay reports that the information was revealed by a member of a youth vigilante group.

The bombers are said to have been “commissioned to explode bombs at high density areas.”

Also, the source revealed that the vigilante group had made it difficult for insurgents to sneak into town due to frequent searches of vehicles and individuals arriving in the town. As a result, the terrorists have devised a new scheme to infiltrate the town – through female suicide bombers.

You will recall that last week, two female suicide bombers attacked a market in Maiduguri, killing over 35 people. And on Monday, another pair of female suicide bombers attacked Maiduguri Monday market, killing 6, and leaving 36 injured.

    I hope it doesn’t take this getting to the southwest before influential people will wade in. I know that if they infiltrate the southwest, especially Lagos, Dangote for example will go after them as half of his business would be at risk.He will donate half of his money to find Boko Haram, so would other businessmen with high stakes…it is sad but that could be all it will take for the beginning of the end of BH.

      You’re still hoping? This is what I started thinking after we hadn’t found them two weeks in. Boko Haram made no demands and just went quiet. Obviously they either needed those girls to carry out their madness or they sold them for money to fund their madness. The problem is that Nigeria has not ONE proactive bone in its governmental body – except when it comes to compulsive pilfering of funds and shameless lying.

    We read the news day in day out about girls suicide bomber but what proactive measures taken by the government, states and federal government to prevent the use of girls for such an act or is it that Nigerians don’t just care about Girl child ni ? I’m lost and confuse. Why can’t the government hold a meeting and dialogue with the Muslim leaders to ban the use Vail (Hijab) temporarily until things get better. How I wish the #Bringbackourgirls campaign group use the resources within their means to keep photos of the 270 girls in the media as a poster so that people can download and paste at every corner, street schools. infact everywhere in Nigeria, someone may recognise or come across one of them somewhere.

      Ban Hijab ke? Did you not hear the outcry when they tried it down south? The problem isn’t so much the Hijab; part of the problem is that a lot of people who wear it are silent when these things happen, and then once in a while an article pops up about injustice and misrepresentation of Muslims and bias against the Hijab. How easy is it to keep one’s objectivity when this kind of story is becoming commonplace and we do not hear about Nigerian Muslims doing much beyond Bella Naija activism?
