The suspected Boko Haram suicide bombers have again struck Borno State, killing about seven people including a mother and children. This is coming barely a week after four suicide bombers including pregnant woman unleashed terror on Nigeria’s North Eastern state.


The Spokesperson of National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) in the North-East, Abdulkadir Ibrahim, on Sunday, said the attack occurred on Saturday’s night after Ishai Muslim prayers.


“Three suicide bombers have attacked Ummarari Village in Jere Local Government of Borno State killing a mother, her two children and members of Civilian JTF,” Ibrahim said.

He said that the “attack led to the death of the four civilians while eight others were also injured”.

This was confirmed by PRNigeria, stating that the bombers included an adult and two teenagers.

The NEMA North East Spokesperson disclosed that bodies of the dead and the injured had been evacuated.

Abdulkadir said: “the casualties were evacuated to Borno State specialist hospital by the NEMA ERT and SEMA. The remains of the three suicide bombers were also deposited at the mortuary of the hospital.”

In another development, officials of NEMA North East were at Konduga IDP camp to distribute relief materials.

The camp was recently gutted by fire outbreak and some of the items distributed included foodstuffs, household utensils, clothing, footwear, nylon mats and Baby food.

The food items were provided in collaboration with Borno state Emergency Management Agency (BOSEMA) to ensure food security.
