Female Suicide Bomber Dies in Blast While Attempting to Bomb Army Barrack in Gombe
Reports reaching Abusididu.com indicates that a female suicide bomber detonated a bomb this morning along Military Quarter Guard in Biu Road in Gombe State, killing herself.
The bomb, which the woman was reportedly carrying in her purse, went off before she got to the Quarter Guard believed to be her target.
Eye-witnesses believe that the bomb went off prematurely.
A statement by the Defence Headquarters said troops mounting a security check point at the Barrack entrance in Gombe this morning intercepted the lady suicide bomber while she was attempting to gain entry into the barracks.
The lady suicide bomber who had primed herself with improvised explosive devices concealed under her Hijjab was intercepted when troops acting on intelligence report indicating that a terrorist group was plotting to attack Barracks around Gombe using
female suicide bombers, halted her and as she was being searched the bomb
detonated killing the lady, the statement said.
It added that one of the troops conducting the search also died while another was wounded in the explosion.
Normal activities have since resumed in the barracks, the defence headquarters said.
