Remains of the suicide attacker being removed by NEMA officials
A planned suicide attack in Maiduguri this morning failed as the bomber died while lying in wait for the right time to attack the University of Maiduguri.
The institution which has recently become the target of Boko Haram suicide attacks with about five attempts in the last three months survived yet another effort by the deeded terror group.
Just on Friday, an attempted suicide attack at one of the female hostels was foiled with three suicide bombers losing the lives.
It was, however, a surprise that barely 24 hours later there was another attempted suicide attack on the institution.
According to the statement by the spokesman of the National Emergency Management Agency, (NEMA) in the North East, Mallam Abdulkadir Ibrahim, the suicide bomber was the lone death recorded during the attempted attack.
He said the explosive on him went off while lying in wait for the right opportunity to detonate the bomb among students’ gathering.
The statement read: “Today 20/5/2017 some minutes past 10 am, one male adult suicide bomber hid in the bush within university community surrounding, supposedly trying to gain access into university where students are gathering.
Unfortunately for him the IED exploded and killed him, No casualty was recorded. The corpse was deposited at Borno specialist hospital.”
