Two Suicide Bombers Die In Konduga, Leave Three Injured
The plan to attack a community in Borno State by two suicide bombers failed on Saturday.
Two suicide bombers had planned to attack residents of Mandanari community in Konduga, but were spotted before they gained access into the area.
A statement by the spokesman for the army, Colonel Onyeama Nwachukwu, said troops neutralised two suicide bombers at the community in the evening of April 7, when they attempted to infiltrate the community.
Nwachukwu said that the suicide bombers strapped with Improvised Explosive Device (IEDs) vests, attempted to sneak into the community at about 8:00 p.m. local time on Saturday.
"The suicide bombers were sighted by vigilant troops who challenged them from a safe distance.
"The patrol engaged them as they refused to halt and ran towards the community, detonating their IEDs.
"Only the suicide bombers were killed in the incident, while three persons who sustained minor injuries were receiving medical attention," he added.
