15 feared dead, 21 injured in Maiduguri night suicide attacks

No fewer than 15 people were killed and 21 others injured when four suicide bombers Tuesday night attacked a Molai Kalmari village of Maiduguri, the Borno state capital.
The dead and the injured have been evacuated to various hospitals within the metropolis.
Molai Kalmari is south east of the metropolis and less than 8 kilometres drive from Maiduguri
It was reliably gathered from fleeing residents that the incidents which occured simulteneously around 10:15pm on Tuesday had caused pandemonium, as surrounding communities of Molai Kura, Hajiya Zille and Mammanti villages scampered for safety.
A source said, the first suicide bomber who disguised as resident sneaked into a public borehole where many had gathered to fetch water, detonated his Improvised Explosive Devices, IEDs, killing over 10 people, while the other suicide bombers died with a member of Civilian JTF who prevented one of the bombers before reaching their targets.
