BEVERLY HILLS, January 30, (THEWILL) – An 8 year-old female suicide bomber was on Monday killed while trying to gain access to an internally displaced persons (IDP) camp in Banki town in Borno state.
According to TheCable, the World Food Program (WFP), an international agency, was said to be distributing relief materials in the camp when the incident occurred.
Security operatives around the camp prevented her from fulfilling her mission while there was no report ofany other casualty in the attack.
Suicide bombing has been the major challenge of security forces battling Boko Haram insurgents in the north-east region.
Although the military believes that the insurgents have been degraded, particularly after the capturing of camp Zairo in the dreaded Sambisa forest, Boko Haram still leaves its trademark of sorrow.
