BREAKING! Updated: How Two Female Suicide Bombers Disguised As Men Killed 22 People in Maduguri Mosque, NE Nigeria

Two female suicide bombers disguised as men kill 22 in Maiduguri Mosque On March 16, 201612:00 pmIn NewsComments At least 22 people were killed on Wednesday when two women disguised as men blew themselves up during morning prayers at a mosque in Maiduguri, northeast Nigeria, rescue officials said. The attack happened at about 5:30 am (0430 GMT) in the Molai district of the city, which has been repeatedly targeted in the past by Boko Haram insurgents. Borno State Emergency Management Agency spokesman Abdullahi Omar told AFP: “There was an explosion in the mosque in Molai on the outskirts of the city. “We’re waiting for our response team to be back and then give us the details before we can issue any statement.” 
 
But a source at the agency added: “This morning just before prayers two women disguised as men came by the mosque. “One of them went in and joined the first row of the congregation and when the worshippers stood up for the prayers she detonated her explosives, killing several worshippers. “While the others were trying to flee, the second woman who stood outside the mosque rushed in and set off her explosives in their midst. “Rescue is still ongoing but so far 22 people have been confirmed dead and 35 others injured.” 
 
The source, who asked for anonymity as he was not authorised to talk to the media, said survivors of the attack and evidence from the rescue operation identified the bombers as women. The attack bore all the hallmarks of Boko Haram Islamists, who have regularly hit “soft” civilian targets such as mosques, markets and bus stations, including with female suicide bombers. Maiduguri, where the group was formed in 2002, has been relatively calm in recent months as a result of heavy security and a sustained counter-offensive against the militants last year. 
 
Nigeria has said the rebels, whose insurgency has left at least 17,000 dead since 2009, have been “technically” defeated, despite continued attacks in Borno state and neighbouring Cameroon. On January 31, at least 85 people were killed when insurgents attacked the village of Dalori, some 12 kilometres (seven miles) from Maiduguri. The city itself was last attacked on November 22 last year when a female suicide bomber blew herself up among a crowd of women and children seeking sanctuary from the rural town of Dikwa. Eight people were killed. 
 
A twin suicide attack on a mosque in Molai on October 15 last year killed 30 and injured 32. The previous June 27, a suicide bomber left five dead in a blast outside a leprosy centre in the area.

Auditor General released the reports of stolen commonwealth - $16billion stolen from the oil revenue in 2014 alone and pdplutocrats strikes back! Unfortunately this was expected and the security forces should dig deep to leverage intelligence to strangle the supply lines and logistics of these militia. Thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their family. The suicide bombers and their entire sponsors are going straight to hell. The deepest part of hell is reserved for them. The authorities should however do the needful to work with the best resources in the world to choke out their supply lines, fish out the perpetrators and their sponsors.
