Two young female Boko Haram suicide bombers wearing bomb vests planned a suicide bomb attack in a crowd in Maiduguri, Nigeria. One vest detonated but we have no report as to casualties.
The other bomber’s vest failed to detonate. She was chased down by a mob of her would-be victims and summarily beaten to death.
As reported by The Sun, a female suicide bomber was lynched to death by an angry mob after she had tried and failed to blow herself up.
The woman was battered to death after her accomplice had successfully detonated their explosives vest in Maiduguri, Nigeria.
The failed suicide bomber, thought to be a member of Nigerian terror group Boko Haram, was battered to death at a cattle market
It is thought they intended to coordinate attacks to kill as many people as possible.
Nigerian cops confirmed one woman blew herself up while the second was “lynched by an irate mob in her vicinity”.
Nobody has claimed responsibility for the attack which took place at roughly 8.40am local time (7.40am UK time) on Boxing Day.
Security forces believe the terrorists were members of Nigerian terror group Boko Haram – a title which roughly translates to “Western education is forbidden”.
Earlier this week President Muhammadu Buhari claimed the Nigeria’s military had successfully wiped out Boko Haram’s main base in the Sambisa Forest.
