TWO suicide bombers, a male and a female, on Wednesday July 1, 2015 detonated a bomb in Molai village, a few kilometres from the places visited by the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.

A member of the youth vigilante group, Modu Abba, told newsmen in Maiduguri that another set of suicide bombers struck four days after Saturday’s bombing incident at the general hospital in Molai, where five persons died and 16 others.

Molai is 10 kilometres to the south of Maiduguri, where the Vice President visited Osinbajo on Wednesday to check on the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) quartered in the town.

Maiduguri houses about 1.5 million persons made homeless by the Boko Haram insurgency, this include about 125,000 quartered in 22 camps.

According to Abba, the two suicide bombers were unsuccessful in their dastardly enterprise as they only succeeded in blowing themselves up and leaving two persons injured.

He said the suicide bombers were terrorists who were suspected to have sneaked into Molai from Sambisa Forest, the notorious base of the gangsters that has been under military siege for some time now.

Abba said on Wednesday the two suicide bombers were blown to pieces by the explosives strapped on their bodies.
