Military Foils Suicide Attack On Guantanamo, Kill Three
It is not the infamous American prison for terrorists in Cuba. It is a military outpost in Maiduguri.
Three female bombers, all teenagers, attempted to bomb Guantanamo last night around 10PM but luck ran out on them as the Nigerian army made sure they only bombed themselves.
According to a press statement by the spokesman of the National Emergency Management Authority, Abdulkadir Ibrahim, the three teenage females with explosives strapped on them were lost.
Ibrahim said a security officer, who was among those who intercepted the three teenagers, was injured.
The statement read: “Yesterday (Wednesday) night 3/5/2017, at 10:05 pm, three female teenage suicide bombers attempted to attack a military outpost popularly known as “Guantanamo” along Muna garage.
“They were sighted trying to gain access to the premises and were shot by the securities leading to the detonation of their concealed explosives, which killed all three of them and injured one of the security personnel.”
Ibrahim revealed that the corpses of the three were evacuated to Borno State Specialist Hospital, Maiduguri by emergency aid workers.
