Just In: Suicide Bomber Dies While Waiting To Attack UNIMAID
Less than 24 hours after an attempted suicide attack at one of the female hostels in the University of Maiduguri, another suicide attacker has died on Saturday while waiting to attack the institution.
The institution has been under incessant attack lately with about five suicide attacks carried out within it in the last three months.
In a statement by the spokesman of the National Emergency Management Agency in the North East, Mallam Abdulkadir Ibrahim, the suicide bomber was the lone death recorded during the attempted attack.
He said the explosive on him went off while lying in wait for the right opportunity to detonate the bomb among students gathering.
The statement read: “Today 20/5/2017 some minutes past 10 am, one male adult suicide bomber hid in the bush within university community surrounding, supposedly trying to gain access into university where students are gathering.
“Unfortunately for him the IED exploded and killed him, No casualty was recorded. The corpse was deposited at Borno specialist hospital.”
