Troops of the Nigerian Army, assisted by members of the Borno Youths Empowerment Scheme (BOYES), otherwise known as Civilian JTF, intercepted four female suicide bombers on Wednesday morning ahead of a checkpoint at the outskirts of Maiduguri. A statement issued by the Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman stated that the suicide bombers were earlier observed trying to bypass a military checkpoint through a close-by village before they were ordered to take the right road. Few metres to the checkpoint, however, one of the bombers swiftly detonated her vest, prompting the vigilant troops to gun down the other three suicide bombers before they could carry out their nefarious acts.

The statement regretted that "one of the Civilian JTF lost his life and four other persons sustained various degrees of injuries," adding that “The Nigeria Police Explosive Ordinance Device team in the area safely detonated the unexploded Improvised Explosive Device carried by the other suicide bombers.
