5 Die In Suicide Attacks On Maiduguri Community
Residents of Kaleri, a neighbourhood of Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State have been thrown into mourning after five persons died in suicide bomb attacks.
Suicide bombers had snuck into the village on Sunday night and attacked the dwellers. However, reports say only the suicide bombers died in the attack.
Since the military increased onslaught against the terrorist group, they have resorted to attacking soft targets with suicide bombers.
In Sunday's attack which occurred around 7:00 p.m., three residents of the community were injured and are receiving treatment at the state specialist hospital in Maiduguri.
One of the five suicide bombers was said to have set off the improvised explosive vests after she walked to one of the houses near Kaleri market and knocked at the gate, pretending to be a visitor.
The other suicide bombers were two females; an elderly man and a young boy. They were reported to have quickly denoted their suicide vests, after the first suicide bomber attacked, also killing themselves in the process.
Kaleri community is a popular hideout for Boko Haram terrorists that have now been decimated by Nigerian military.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but Boko Haram has carried out such attacks in the past.
