Maiduguri – Again Boko Haram struck at the Banki IDP camp in Bama Local Government area of Borno State as two female suicide bombers reportedly detonated their Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), killing seven persons on Wednesday night.

It was also reported that a number of persons in the camp received various degrees of injuries. Banki is about 200km away from Maiduguri town, and a boarder town between Nigeria and Cameroon.

It is recalled that on Tuesday along the same Bama road, one Soldier was said to have been killed in an encounter with Boko Haram while two others sustained injuries in the attack. But on the side of the insurgents, over 20 were reportedly killed by troops.

Also, earlier on that Tuesday, the convoy of Brigadier-General Victor Ezugwu, the General Officer Commanding (GOC) 7 Division of the Nigeria Army, Maiduguri, was ambushed on the same Bama road, but he escaped unhurt.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack but Boko Haram is largely suspected.

Bama is identified as the worst hit local government area in Borno State by the Boko Haram insurgency.

Meanwhile, all efforts made to get the comments of the spokesman of the Operation Lafia Dole in Maiduguri failed.
