A suicide bomber has been shot dead by officers of the Nigerian army as he tried to gain entry into an IDP camp in Maiduguri, this morning. This is the same IDP camp a female suicide tried to penetrate yesterday, Saturday October 30th, but ended up killing herself and 5 other people.
According to a Civilian JTF commander, Alhaji Dan-Batta, the suicide bomber was spotted loitering around the camp suspiciously. He said;
The male suicide bomber was seen loitering around the back perimeter fence of Bakassi camp at about 9 a.m. He was shot down before he could advance closer to the camp. One of the bombs he was carrying exploded, but another is still strapped on his body did not explode. The anti-bomb squad operatives are trying to defuse that one.
