Borno State: Suicide Bombers Kill Selves, Injures two


imageTwo suicide bomb­ers yesterday hit the gates of the Borno State General Hos­pital, Molai, Maiduguri, killing themselves and in­juring two people.

One of them, a female bomber was said to have blown herself up at the first gate of the hospital at about 11.30a.m. while the sec­ond, suspected to be a male bomber on a bicycle ran into the hospital’s second gate, where a bomb explosion had killed five and injured 16 people last Saturday, wit­nesses said.

A vigilante at Molai area, who did not want his name in print confirmed the in­cident. The source said the two bombers targeted the hospital for the second time. A source at the hospital con­firmed that two people were injured, adding that they were already receiving treat­ment.

Molai hospital, located about 10 kilometres from the business district of the city, also houses a Christian-based leprosy Centre and eye clinic. The incident occurred as Vice President Yemi Osin­bajo visited displaced Boko Haram victims at one of the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camps.
