The Nigerian Army said two female suicide bombers were killed on Friday while trying to infiltrate troops in Kawuri, Konduga local government area of Borno State.
The Deputy Director of Public Relations, Theatre Command Operation Lafiya Dole, Col. Onyema Nwachukwu, disclosed this in a statement on Saturday.
Nwachukwu said the suicide bombers trailed the troops to the military camp at 9:45 p.m., but were promptly detected by vigilant troops who engaged them in a gun duel.
According to him, one of the suicide vests detonated immediately and killed the two suicide bombers.
He said the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team had safely detonated the other suicide vest.
