Members of the Civilian JTF have on Friday morning averted a tragedy, thereby slaughtering four female suicide bombers, who were on a suicide mission at the outskirts of Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state.
The incident, it was learnt, occurred near Jimini village in Jere LGA area on the outskirts of Maiduguri this morning.
According to reports, some members of the CJTF on guard spotted four teenagers wandering freely and then called on them, ordering them to raise up their hands, but they all refused and kept heading towards the vigilantes who had no option other than to shoot them dead.
A member of the CJTF revealed that the teenagers wrapped improvised explosive devices around their bellies in an attempt to wreak havoc on Maiduguri.
“Four suicide bombers were sighted coming from the nearby bush at about 5:15am this morning but their plot to wreak havoc on the residents of Maiduguri was averted by our gallant Civilian JTF members stationed at the outskirts of Maiduguri. They were all shot dead, and none of them escaped.” says a Civilian JTF source.
