Four female bombers stormed Kaleri Area, an outskirt of Maiduguri in Mafa Local Government Area, and exploded the IEDs wrapped around their bodies, killing at least one farmer and injuring six others.

Ba' Kura Muhammad said the first bombers attacked local farmers on their farmland.

"At about 8:23 am there was a loud sound in our area so we were confused, some minutes later the second occurred near military sand bags, injuring a CJTF member."

"At least five were killed including one civilian, while seven farmers were taking to the hospital", said Muhammad.
