Female suicide bombers behind Maiduguri attack that killed 22 – Nigerian Army

Maiduguri Attack

Two suicide bombers attacked a mosque in Maiduguri early Wednesday killing 22 people and injuring 18, the Nigerian Army has confirmed.

The attack in Umarari Village, on the outskirts of Maiduguri, occurred during early morning prayers, an official of the Civilian-JTF, Alhaji Danbatta, who coordinated the evacuation of victims, had told PREMIUM TIMES.

Umarari is about 5km south of Maiduguri, the northeast Nigeria city where Boko Haram insurgency birthed.

The spokesperson for the Army, Sani Usman, a Colonel, said in a statement that the first attack targeted a mosque while the second occurred about 50 metres away, and few minutes later.

“This is to confirm that there were twin person-borne improvised explosive attack carried out by two female carriers in Ummarari village near Molai, outskirts of Maiduguri metropolis, Borno State, this morning,” the statement said. “Sadly, 22 people were killed and 18 others sustained various degrees of injuries.”

“Troops, security agents and care givers have been mobilized to scene, while the wounded have been evacuated to Molai General Hospital for treatment. 

“The troops, security agents and the Civilian JTF have secured the area and are combing the environment for possible clues. 

“While we commiserate with the families of the victims of this dastardly act, we wish to reassure the public that we would continue to rout the remnants of the Boko Haram terrorists wherever they may be hiding. We will not rest on our oars until all those that masterminded this latest heinous and other similar crimes are apprehended and brought to justice.

“Meanwhile, we implore the members of the public to be more security conscious, cooperate with the troops and security agencies. They should also please report any suspicious persons, objects or happenings to troops or security agencies at all times,” the statement said.

The blast is the first to be recorded in Borno state since the last that killed about 50 persons at an IDP camp in Dikwa, a town 85km away from Maiduguri.

  • i dey hear

    Just before this Boko Haram massacre……..

    The Boko Haram terrorists reportedly stormed
    the remote village of Mussa in Askira/Uba Local Government Area (LGA)
    of Borno State at about 8pm last night. Witnesses speaking to SaharaReporters
    said that the terrorists started throwing explosives at civilians, killing at least
    11 people and wounding many others. Boko Haram had previously planted
    improvised explosive devices (IEDs) along the roads connecting Mussa-Wambio
    villages. Local vigilante groups coming to assist Mussa residents under attack
    encountered the IEDs killing four vigilante and injuring six others.

    • Say the truth

      Only Female terrorists are now on rampage because we refused to see reason. We refused to accept that an extraordinary situation require extraordinary measure. As long as women wear hijab to public places we will continue to jeopardize lives. But are we ready to say the truth?

      • Burbank

        And Israel did not banned hijab, despite being the epicenter of suicide bombings for decades.

    WHAT IS OUR BUSINESS WITH THIS ONE? WHAT CONCERNS US WHETHER IT IS MALE BOMBERS
    OR FEMALE BOMBERS? THE IMPORTANT THING IS BOMBER! LOOK, BOKO HARAM IS KILLING US.
    WHETHER THER ARE USING KNIFE TO KILL US OR THEY ARE USING STONE DOES NOT MATTER.
    WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS THAT BOKO HARAM IS KILLING NIGERIANS LIKE MOSQUITOES ANYHOW.

        You and your fellow moslem are defending the killing methods of your fellow jihadists.

        Don’t respond with any of these idiotic_words and phrases: cannibal, cock suker, cross dresser, fag, licking, yapping, loser, peek-a boo, boyfriend, homo, pedo, mofo, gtfou, oloshi, olobruku ado furo, orishirishi_fuck, damn_fuck, faggot & maggot.

        • Julius

          Im not a moslem but, it doesnt matter since your faggot dumb ass ,loves to put other people down, I guess that your way of disparaging the moslems. Thats the Ibo in you. Thats what your loser people do the best. I hope they pay you back in kind. Im not into disrespecting other Religions, I’ll leave that to you. Homos like you are worthless and dont belief in God. Thats why you prefer having sex with young boys and men. You make me sick !

          • Otile

            Pretender, don’t say you are not a moslem. By moslem we mean Muslim, many of you Muslims don’t like to be called moslems or Mohammedans. Is that why you deny your religion?

            Really, I love to engage you in arguments so that you continue to display your ignorance and bad English. If you were smart you would stop commenting and start learning good English to start with. Read you comments here and see how stupid_your ideas and English sound.

            Remember not to respond in your incorrect English coupled with these idiotic_words and phrases:
            cannibal, cock suker, cross dresser, fag, licking, yapping, loser, peek-a boo, boyfriend, homo, pedo, mofo, gtfou, oloshi, olobruku ado furo, orishirishi_fuck, damn_fuck, faggot & maggot.

            homo, pedo, mofo, gtfou, oloshi, olobruku ado furo, orishirishi_fuck,

            Faggot, you are delusional. Now, you are repeating yourself. Lmaooooooooo !!.You need help. Pray and all your homosexual sins shall be forgiving , stop chasing, trolling for boys on the internet You also forgot to add ‘bottom bytch’ to your names. Oya, I dey wait.

          • Otile

            Dummy, don’t your repeat yourself? Can you finish your trash comments without using your usual stupid_words and phrases: cannibal, cock suker,

            homo, pedo, mofo, gtfou, oloshi, olobruku ado furo, orishirishi_fuck,

            And what is the religion of your PDP national chairman Alhaji Ali Modu Sheriff and Imam Dokubo Asari?

            Christianity?

        • Burbank

          “You and your fellow moslem are defending the killing methods of your fellow jihadists.”
          Just like Alhaji Dokubo Asari the mohammedan biafraud.

    Premium Times Editor,

    Please help us. We need help. You are to help us because you are in position. For seven days now there’s no electricity.
    For seven days there is no petrol at the fuel station to buy. That means we cannot run our generators. You know that
    President Muhamadu Buhari is also the Minister of Petroleum. That means Buhari is the worst petroleum Minister that
    Nigeria has ever had, because this nationwide collapse of petrol supply has never happened before in Nigeria.
    I am sweating in the business centre now. I am dying. For seven days no drinking water in the tap because
    there’s no electricity to pump water to the public to drink. This is like end time in Nigeria. APC has killed us.
    Please help us. What we are going through is worse than Boko Haram. Buhari has put Nigeria on reverse.
    Nigerians are now sweating and smelling, without water, and they are colliding with one another at night,
    because there is no electricity supplied by the useless Raji Fashola who is smiling over this disaster
    like an impotent man that we know as ORLY on the next street to my street here.

    • Dafe

      “Urhobo man say ‘instead make i born mumu, make i born thief’.
      Somehow, that statement makes sense. I just realize that it is better
      to give birth to a Tinubu than a Fashola. I have always seen through Raji Fashola.
      I have watched his decisions, and utterances, and I have come to realize that this
      Raji Fashola does not have the two round inhabitants of a scrotum.”

        But my own question is simple:if female bombers are those killing Nigerians like this,

        what will happen when the male bombers arrive? I know why i am asking this, please.

        • Public Records

          “Even if you give Buhari 20 years to prepare, it would still be beyond his capacity.
          Nigeria is a very complex country. Leading such complex country is an intellectual
          issue and Buhari doesn’t have the intellectual capacity to comprehend what it
          means to govern the country.”

          • damilola austin-williams

            @Public Records,

            We have been asking for Buhari 1961 Wasc/Cambridge certificate since January 2015.

            You can see Nigerians have not been sitting on their hands by giving Buhari a free ride.

            Professor Ben Nwabueze has now added his voice to popular opinion on this matter.

          • Lewis Eki

            @disqus_paW8wtqYDu:disqus: No, no! You can’t impeach Professor Ben Nwabueze’s standing. He is Nigeria’s foremost constitutional lawyer and a consultant to African countries on constitutional law matters.
            If you have good arguments and evidence of your own to show that Muhamadu Buhari is the most competent president in the world, please go ahead and make your argument after laying down the evidence for your contention. You’ll never convince anybody that Buhari is not as incompetent as Professor Ben Nwabueze depicts him by saying Ben Nwabueze does not have the standing to make his own assertion. You just go ahead and show proof of Buhari’s competence, okay?

          • arewa

            Let the prof come and rule Nigeria since you feel he is more competent than GMB. As incompetent as u think GMB is, at least he succeeded in carpeting ur “ineffectual Buffon”.

          • Iniabasi Akpan

            Bring back that ineffectual Buffon pls…..he’s a trillion times better than this mistake of a president.

          • Burbank

            That buffon already robbed, raped and plundered billions from you, and that’s not a mistake!

          • musa aliyu

            Simply because of an arranged professorship in law, you rant nonsense as your nwabu… has a penchant for. You will live to be frustrated you and your old hag to see Nigeria flourish while you rot where you belong

            Answer : Yes.

            He’s still have more than 3 years to “show his competence”, okay?

            and the courts had thrown out all those “certificate” case, every single one and yet you are still wailing.

          • New Nigerian

            Who is Prof. ben Nwabueze? He is Prof in what? Government? What experience in leadership does he have? And was he not in total support of the ineffectual buffoon to continue in office? And in the same interview you quote from, he now says Jonathan was corrupt! He wanted corruption to kill Nigeria. He still does.

          • musa aliyu

            Yes, because Buhari did not go to arrange professorship in any university. Tufiakwa for Buhari to become a lameduck, senile, egocentric and nepotostistic “intellectual “

          • Burbank

            And that zoology doctorate did a marvelous job for 6 years, with Tompolo and Dasuki as his co-Presidents.

    • New Nigerian

      Produce Government Ekpemopolo a.k.a Tompolo who shut down the refineries and power plants or provide information leading to his arrest or petition IG Arase to fish him out from wherever he is…he caused all the hardship you mentioned here and more

        Look, let us value our lives as human beings and demand for ourselves the same standards that all of humanity outside Nigeria demand for themselves. Accepting to live without water, electricity and petrol
        in the 21st century, is tantamount to national psychiatric illness in Nigeria, on a basis of APC solidarity.

      “For seven days no drinking water in the tap because there’s no electricity to pump water to the public to drink.”
      And for 6 years under GEJ, with no water and no electricity, you remained silent.
      The money GEJ authorised Dasuki to divert into his pocket could have built enough power stations to light up Europe!
      But yet you blamed Buhari.

    Boko Haram is killing, lack of electricity is killing, non available petro is killing, armed robbers are killing. What’s President Buhari’s solution to the above . He will deal with Jonathan past administration. May God have mercy on Nigeria.

      Maybe we will have some money to tackle some of our issues when those looters under Jonathan refund or made to refund the $billions they stole.Including Jonathan , dr Fortunato himself.

    Typical. Auditor General released the reports of stolen commonwealth – $16billion stolen from the oil revenue in 2014 alone and pdplutocrats strikes back! Unfortunately this was expected and the security forces should dig deep to leverage intelligence to strangle the supply lines and logistics of these militia. Thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their family.

    The suicide bombers and their entire sponsors are going straight to hell. The deepest part of hell is reserved for them. The authorities should however do the needful to work with the best resources in the world to choke out their supply lines, fish out the perpetrators and their sponsors. The looters would be caged and the stolen commonwealth retrieved. This is corruption fighting back and we the people, led by this administration will never retreat, victory is certain, God willing.
