Three female suicide bombers were on Wednesday shot dead in Bakin Dutse, Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa State, officials have said.

The officials said the three girls were on a mission to carry out suicide bombings at a crowded market in Gulak, before they were shot by soldiers and local vigilante.

The three women were intercepted at Bakin Dutse Village, five kilometers from Gulak, the administrative headquarters of Madagali Local Government Area where villagers converge in their hundreds every Wednesday for the market day.

Badare Akintoye, the Army Public Relations Officer at the 28 Task Force Battalion in Mubi, confirmed the incident.

“We gunned down three female suicide bombers. Our soldiers are on alert and commercial activities are going on there,” the army major stated.

The chairman of Madagali Local Government Area, Yusuf Gulak, provided more details in a telephone interview.

“Our local vigilantes that are now assisting the soldiers saw the three female suicide bombers who were on a mission to strike in the market.

“On seeing them fast approaching, they asked them to stop but the girls declined instead running faster, so one was instantly gunned down and the bomb on her body exploded. So also the second girl.

“The third girl attempted to run but could not succeed as she was also shot dead.”

Mr. Gulak called for the deployment of more troops in the area.

Wednesday’s incident is coming few hours after soldiers repelled an early morning attack on Tuesday by Boko Haram insurgents on Dar village in Madagali.

Last December, two female suicide bombers killed over 50 people at a local market in Madagali.

Suicide bomb attacks, mainly on soft targets like markets, is one of the major forms of attack by Boko Haram insurgents whose activities since 2009 have caused the death of at least 20,000 people.

The Nigerian military recently achieved a major feat against the insurgents by taking control of the Sambisa forest, formerly a bastion of the Boko Haram.

    We hope the gunning down of these girls is a bogus hoax from sojajin Najeriya to boost their morale. Recently there has been spurious claims of imaginary victories and gunning down of girls. It is impossible to defeated a real suicide bomber. If you hit her both you are dead, if she hits you both of are dead animals. You cannot say that you hit a suicide bomber and walk away brandishing your weapons. We don’t want a situation where our troops will be shooting at Muslim girls on mere suspicion that they are suicide bombers, it is unacceptable.

    • Eluba Inas

      Do you honestly care about Muslim girls? You are indeed a character. Anything to score a point with the government you never disappoint.

            After you, liar.

      • Otile

        Do you honestly believe any Muslim girl sojajin Najeriya kill is a suicide bomber?
        Do you believe that any hogwash the lying administration announces is true?

        • Eluba Inas

          Quite possible mistakes have been made, though I am yet to read that. However, the security forces have the responsibility to act on the side of caution–Allow a burga wearing girl running towards a crowd with something possibly bulging or take her out? It is a tough call.

      @otile my favourite born-again hypocrite bigot liar.
      Israel used similar techniques against Shites Hezbollah and Hamas suicide bombers.

          Just like Ojukwu fled to Ivory Coast, from Gowon.

    How is it that it is either the Army now recognises the suicide bombers before they detonate the bombs OR that the suicide bombers detonate the bombs at a SAFE distance from their supposed targets. Wonderful isn’t it?
    This Buhari’s regime is just the more you look, the less you see. What surprises me is the silence of Nigerians. The other day a Nigerian who claims he has ‘integrity’ and ‘fights for social justice’ shredded his US green card just because President Trump was rumoured to have kisssed some women. Whereas the same man looks on as Buhari sends soldiers to kill and bury peaceful protesters in Biafra land and Shit Muslims in Kaduna.

      That’s why check points exist, even in Israel.

    Gone were the days when Boko Haram convoys of Hiluxes attacked army bases in broad daylight. Now they resorting to soft targets like markets, just like terrorists in Europe and Asia.

    • Otile

      You ass-lickers have taken to propaganda warfare. Nowadays when sojajin Najeriya of Fulani stock attack girls you their minions announce that the victims are suicide bombers. Do your recognize suicide bombers by the size of their hijab?

      • Burbank

        You will not recognise them because you run away even from your shadows, bigot liar.
