Troops of Operation Lafiya Dole on Friday intercepted and neutralized two female suicide bombers who attempted to infiltrate a military Forward Operational Base in Kawuri, a remote community in konduga Local Government Area of Borno state.
The suicide bombers had used the cover of darkness to stalk the military camp at about 9.45 pm, but were promptly detected by the vigilant troops who engaged them when they refused to comply with the order to halt.
One of the suicide vests detonated immediately killing the two suicide bombers while the second suicide vest failed to detonate.
Explosive Ordnance disposal team has safely detonated the suicide vest.
