Five Killed As Suicide Bomber Attacks Dalori IDPs Camp

Five persons were killed and 39 injured on Wednesday, following an attack by two suicide bombers on an Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camp in Dalori, Borno State.

This was confirmed in a statement by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).

According to the statement, one of the suicide bombers who attempted to gain entrance into the camp, detonated his IED at the perimeter fencing of the camp killing himself.

The second one, however, gained entrance into the camp where he killed 3 persons as well as himself and injured 39 others.

Those injured were immediately taken to various hospitals within the city centre of Maiduguri where they are undergoing treatment.

NEMA says so far, peace has been restored to the camp.
