Suicide Bomber Attack Foiled in University of Maduguri

Two male suicide bombers were sighted and intercepted along the parapet behind the University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID) by joint security operatives deployed to the university.

One of the suicide bombers was shot dead while the second bomber hurriedly detonated the Improvised Explosive Device (IED) strapped to his body, killing himself to avoid being captured alive.
The spokesman for the Borno State Police Command, Mr Victor Isuku, revealed in a statement that the incident occurred on Thursday.
He said it followed the deployment of “a full unit of Police Mobile Force (PMF) personnel as well as guard and sniffer police dogs to the University to complement the presence of security personnel there”.
Isuku added: “These deployments have started yielding the desired results amongst which are to prevent and nip in the bud, any attempt by these enemies of peace to threaten the lives and safety of the University of Maiduguri community and its environs”.
He said that a team of Police EOD was drafted to sanitise the university and its environ, adding that normalcy has since been restored.
