By now you should know that the police in Borno arrested a 13-year-old suicide bomber, Zara Idriss, in Maiduguri on Monday.

The story, as confirmed by the Commissioner of Police is that the girl was apprehended by men of the command behind the Bakassi Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camp.

CP Damian Chukwu says preliminary investigations showed that the girl and three other female suicide bombers were brought in a vehicle into Maiduguri.

However, she is refusing to cooperate with the police to help them apprehend the other girls who might still have explosives strapped on to their bodies.

“She told us that four of them were dropped by a car and her mission was to detonate explosive in the camp area.

“The girl is refusing to lead us to the place where she threw away the explosive device vest. Our men are on the trail of the remaining suicide bombers.

“I am happy people are now becoming security conscious in the communities,” he said.

The commissioner urged people to go about their normal businesses, be vigilant and report suspicious persons or movements to security agencies.
