Less than a month after suicide bomber’s attack in a mosque inside the University of Maiduguri, another suicide bomber attempted an attack on another mosque in the morning of Tuesday, January 31, 2017 at Dalori quarters.
Dalori quarters is close to the University of Maiduguri.
The bomber detonated the explosive device at a fence to the mosque because there are security vigilantes at the entrance to the worship centre.
PRNigeria gathered that the bomber was a young person between the age of 8 and 10 years.
One person was also killed from the explosion apart from the suicide bomber.
When contacted on the gender of the suicide bomber the spokesperson of National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, North-East zone, Abdulkadir Ibrahim said, “The body of the bomber was so mangled and shredded that only health personnel or experts could determine whether it is that of a boy or a girl. Our role is to evacuate the bodies from the scene which we have done.”
