Nigerian security operatives have intercepted another suicide bomber who attempted to penetrate a Transit Camp of Internally Displaced People (IDPs) along Muna Garage.

While suspecting the ulterior motive of the suicide bomber with his strange behaviour, the security operatives attempted to accustom him.

But in his attempt to detonate the explosive device, he was gunned down by the officials

PRNigeria gathered that the Transit camp is used to check and screen potential displaced people before being allowed into any of the IDP camps in Maiduguri and others in Borno State.

The spokesperson of National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, in the North-East, Ibrahim Abdulkadir, confirmed that the mangled body of the suicide bomber had been evacuated.

IDP camps have recently become prime targets of the Boko Haram in suicide attacks. Many of such attacks have failed and the suicide bombers killed.

Suicide bombing is one of the ways the Boko Haram have used in their insurgency that has caused the death of over 20,000 people in northern Nigeria since 2009.

    What will be more interesting is the identity of the suicide bombers. Who are they ? Where were they trained etc.? What are the captured ones saying ? I will like to hear that the army found their hideout. This info can be discovered by military intelligence. After each attack we just wait for the next suspicious character. That’s not the way to fight an insurgency.
