At least three female bombers were on Thursday pursued by troops fighting Boko Haram insurgents in Borno State and died in the process.

A statement issued by spokesman of the Nigerian Army, Col Sani Usman, disclosed that the three women working for Boko Haram were killed before they could carry out their act at a military location in Gwoza local government area of Borno State.

Col Usman claimed that the suicide bombers had attempted to force their way into the troops’ location, but were exposed by vigilantes who suspected their mode of dressing and the nature of their hijabs, which were laden with IEDS.

“The suicide bombers who came through Pulka axis were sighted by members of vigilante from a distance and alerted the troops about the impending catastrophe.

“The very observant vigilante also noted that the women looked suspicious; walking awkwardly with bulging hijab and distinct from other female farmers.

“When the suicide bombers noticed that they were being observed, they hurriedly ran towards troops aiming to detonate it on them.

“The troops neutralized two of the female suicide bombers, while the other ran back into the bush but was pursued.

“Unfortunately, a soldier sustained injuries due to the impact of the explosion.

“The wounded soldier is currently receiving treatment at a military medical centre and he is in stable condition,” the Army’s image maker narrated in the statement.
