Maiduguri: 7 Female Suicide Bombers Killed In Aborted Attacks

Nigeria: Police Confirms Borno Suicide Attacks

The major damage happened at Muna Garage, a truck station where 13 stationary trucks were burnt after a bomber attacked.

Confirming the Muna Garage attack, the spokesman for the Borno command, Victor Isukwu, a deputy superintendent of police, said only the suicide bombers died in the attack. Nine bombers and two civilians were killed, according to witnesses, soldiers and police.

"He detonated an Improvised Explosive Devise (IED) strapped on his body", Isuku said. The resulting explosion razed down the parked vehicles beyond recognition.

However, in the past year, the military has succeeded in beating back the Islamist militant sect and significantly reduced the amount of suicide attacks on innocent civilians in the northeast.

One witness, Ibrahim Ali, told Anadolu Agency: "We just heard the sound simultaneously from three points".

The Nigerian Army on Thursday evening foiled a Boko Haram attack that targeted Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State in the country's north-east.
