About ten Islamic worshippers have been confirmed dead early Monday morning, as a female suicide bomber struck at a mosque in Maiduguri, Borno state.
TheCable reported that a soldier also killed two suicide bombers that were said to be targeting an Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs camp in the Mamanti area of the ancient city.
Usman Yusuf, a witness, said that the soldier opened fire as the suspects made their way to the camp.
Damian Chukwu, commissioner of police in the state, promised to hold a press conference later in the day.
This is the latest in a spate of suicide bombings since the release of some commanders of Boko Haram in exchange for 82 out of the kidnapped Chibok girls.
Shortly after the captives were freed, the sect released a video to warn of devastating attacks in the days ahead.
The attacks have continued even though security agencies claimed that the insurgents have been subdued.
The University of Maiduguri, which was peaceful in the heart of insurgency, has suffered many attacks.
