Suspected Boko Haram suicide bomber has on Wednesday night detonated his explosives Killing 5 persons and leaving 39 others injured inside Dalori Internal Displace Persons (IDP) camp in Maiduguri , the Borno State capital. Alhaji Satomi Ahmad , chairman of Borno State Emergency Agency (SEMA) confirmed the incident.
The incident is coming on the heels of several activities of officers of the Nigerian Military to mitigate the destructive capacities and abilities of the daredevil Boko Haram members.
The terrorist organisation’s activities have been reduced drastically while their ranks have been decimated with soft targets being at risk.
Satomi said ” five people were killed and 39 others injured after a suicide bomber detonated his explosives inside Dalori camp . But the second suicide died alone after he tried to enter Dalori Quaters .”
Meanwhile a source close to scene of the incident revealed that death toll is likely to rise following the severe injury sustained by the bomb victims .
The Boko Haram terrorist group have continued to carry out attacks in recent months with its main focus on soft targets , killing mostly defenseless civilians and in some cases Nigeria soldiers . The Nigerian military have also continued to destroy the terrorists camps inside the Sambisa Forest , killing many of them , but for now, suicide bombing remains a hard nut to crack for security operatives.
The importance of the security of the IDPs have been raised recently as it appears Boko Haram members have devised new means of causing their harm on hardly suspecting IDPs.
On several occasios, suicide bombers have disguised, wreaking a havoc and leaving many dead and several injured. The Nigerian Military must be on the lookout as it appears there are crumbs left from the Boko Haram decimation as the Federal Government continues its efforts to rid the North East, especially Borno State off terrorists and their activities.
