Bombs in Bags

A bag filled with improvised bombs discovered by Civilian-JTF, a youth vigilante group, was detonated accidentally, resulting in the death of 63 people. Many were also injured.

The incident occurred around 5 p.m on Tuesday, Daily Post reports.

According to the report:

An eyewitness and operative of the Vigilante Group of Nigeria (VGN), Haruna Bukar, told journalists on phone that a group of Civilian-JTF on patrol along Monguno-Marte route stumbled upon a bag containing metallic substances at an area where Boko Haram terrorists had once camped.

“When they found the bag containing what later turned out to be improvised explosives, they brought it to Monguno town where people gathered to take a looks at it. As they were busy fiddling with the content of the bag, the bombs went off with a massive blast that killed about 63 persons and injured dozen others”, said the eyewitness.

“It was really a very sad incident that affected many families. Most of those affected are young men and a few number of females.”

    Our president is having dinner with El Rufai after his trip round the globe! Over 400 killed by BH since he resumed and hardly any word from him. Atleast, we used to get ‘condemnation ‘ before, this one na radio silence. Even the people that used to cry daily about BH are now sleeping. We’ve been royally scammed, but one day we’d get it right…

    May the souls of the victims rest in peace

    May their soul rest in peace. Next time, try to be righteous by calling the police not you carry the bomb. It is not a toy.
