Four female suicide bombers on a suicide mission on Friday have been shot and killed by the Civilian JTF near Maiduguri in Borno state.
The incident occurred at Jimini village in Jere LGA area on the outskirts of Maiduguri the Borno State capital this morning when some CJTF on guard sighted four teens roamings and asked them to raise up their hands but they refused and kept heading towards the vigilantes who shot them dead.
A member of CJTF, who disclosed this to Saharareporters, said 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.
