Eight female bombers killed
ABUJA: The Nigerian Army has killed eight female suicide bombers after deadly attacks at refugee camps.
Lieutenant Colonel Kingsley Samuel, deputy director Army public relations, said the military successes achieved had been made possible through the active collaboration of police, intelligence services and civilian vigilante groups.
Among those killed was a woman trying to force her way into a refugee camp in Maiduguri in Borno State.
Maiduguri is a hotbed of Boko Haram attacks on civilians and government forces.
Two suicide bombers trying to infiltrate military locations at a village in the state were also killed.
All other suspects were neutralised while attempting to blow themselves up at public places.
However, suicide bombers this week successfully detonated devices at two camps housing thousands of refugees, killing eight civilians. The UN has condemned the suicide bomb attacks. CAJ News
