Following a string of suicide bombings in Maiduguri in the night of Sunday, January 8, 2016, rescue workers from the national and state emergency management agencies have evacuated corpses of the suspects and victims to mortuaries.
The attacks, believed to be carried out by Boko Haram, were intercepted by Nigerian troops in the Borno capital city. According to authorities, the casualties would have been “much more”.
Led by the chairman of Borno State Emergency Management Agency, BOSEMA, Satomi Ahmed in conjunction with NEMA, twelve bodies were evacuated Monday morning.
Among the corpses were that of two suicide bombers at Muna Garage and two other suicide bombers killed at Kaleri temporary settlement, behind University of Maiduguri.
PRNigeria confirms that apart from the four killed suicide bombers, four bodies of innocent victims who died during the explosion were also removed.
The Nigerian troops had ensured that none of the suicide bombers escaped during the incidents as they closely monitored and protected the exit routes.
