AFP Eight killed in Nigeria suicide bombing authorities

Last Monday, at least 19 people were killed and 23 others injured when four women set off their bombs in the Molai Kolemari area of the city.

Residents of Maiduguri, the Borno state capital have been advised to be tired of new tactics adopted by members of the dreaded Islamic sect, Boko Haram, following regular interception of Boko Haram terrorists suicide bombers by troops of Operation LAFIYA DOLE.

The rampaging youths attacked the SEMA's Emergency Rapid Response team dispatched to evacuate corpses and to render assistance to the victims.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the explosions, but similar attacks in the past were claimed by Boko Haram militants.

It took the intervention of members of the Civilian Joint Task Force to rescue the SEMA officials.

A witness, Grema Bana, said the incident occurred at about 4:45pm in one of the pastoralist hamlets in the area.

Boko Haram has continued to deploy suicide bombers across the northeast especially in Maiduguri, where it had long perpetrated its most devastating attacks.

The university on June 25 came under a series of attacks as suicide bombers detonated explosives at different locations, including the security office where two lives were reportedly lost.

There is at least one other bombing in another part of the city.

The suicide bomber was being chased by security operatives when she detonated the bombs strapped to her chest.
