According to breaking publication, a suspected female suicide bomber who would have blown up the General Shuwa Memorial Hospital, Maiduguri and killed the health workers and the patients they labour hard to treat was apprehended by security agents on Thursday.
The accused, a relatively old woman, who disguised as a relation of a female patient who had come to present food at the maternity ward was said to have been confronted first by the hospital’s security guards and was arrested after it was discovered that she hid an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in a food flask she was carrying.
Speaking to reporters, one of the security guards said: “When she was asked to open the other flask, she refused, swearing that she will not open it. Our security guards have to call the soldiers at a military post to ascertain whether or not the flask contains any explosive. Three minutes after, the bomb detector beeped for some seconds, indicating the presence of an explosive device, and the old woman was immediately whisked way by the military personnel to an unknown destination for further interrogation and investigation.”
On the identity of the suspect, he said that when the woman was asked about her place of residence, she responded that: “I am an old woman from Chibok town, and I wanted to deliver food to one of my relations admitted here in this hospital.”
It would be recalled; we disclosed that Boko Haram releases Chibok girls through suicide bombing! Could this fairly old woman be part of the abducted young innocent girls, perhaps 224 days have significantly altered her looks. What do you think??
