VANGUARD NEWS reported that “At least 20 people were killed when a female suicide bomber detonated her explosives at a bus station in Maiduguri, a civilian vigilante and a survivor said on Monday. “We have sorted out 20 dead bodies and 50 others that were injured,” said vigilante Danlami Ajaokuta and a survivor who escaped the blast near the city’s fish market on Baga Road.”
According to BBC NEWS,
“At least 20 people have been killed after female suicide bombers attacked a fish market in Nigeria’s north-eastern city of Maiduguri, eyewitnesses have told the BBC.
The attackers disguised themselves as beggars to try to enter the market, eyewitnesses say.
One woman blew herself up inside the market, while another fled, detonating her vest nearby, with no casualties.
Islamist militant group Boko Haram has not commented on the attack.
The group will be the key suspect, as it is known for carrying out suicide bomb attacks in the city.
Maiduguri is the birthplace of Boko Haram, and the Nigerian military has recently begun moving its headquarters from the capital Abuja to the strategic north-eastern city.”
Over the week end President Buhari was busy commending cows in Katsina. Critics accused him of neglecting the security situation of the country to attend what appears to be private business. Some indicated that the president should not be involved in any other private after business since the running of the country requires 24/7 attention.
