Female Suicide Bomber Nabbed In Maidugiri

Security agents arrested a suspected female suicide bomber who

concealed an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in a food flask she was

carrying to blow up the General Shuwa Memorial Hospital, Maiduguri

yesterday, Guardian reports.

The suspected suicide bomber who is fairly old, was confronted by

the hospital's security guards at the gate. She disguised as a

relation of a female patient who had come to present food at the

maternity ward. But when she was stopped at the gate to open the two

food flasks she was carrying, she refused to open one of the flasks.

One of the hospital's security guards told journalists that:"When she

was asked to open the other flask, she refused, swearing that she will

not open it. Our security guards have to call the soldiers at a

military post to ascertain whether or not the flask contains any

explosive. Three minutes after, the bomb detector beeped for some

seconds, indicating the presence of an explosive device, and the old

woman was immediately whisked way by the military personnel to an

unknown destination for further interrogation and investigation."

He said when the woman was asked about where she stays, she told them

that:"I am an old woman from Chibok town, and I wanted to deliver food

to one of my relations admitted here in this hospital."

It will be recalled that a youth vigilante group in Borno recently

revealed that there are 52 female suicide bombers on the prowl in
