Female Suicide bomber,14 refuses to strike in Borno
A teenage girl packed with explosives by Boko Haram ripped off her vest to avoid taking part in the attack on Borno Internally Displaced Persons camp (IDPs) in Dikwa, Borno State on Tuesday, the Nation reports.
Two others with her, however, walked into the middle of hundreds of people lining up for food before they blew themselves up in the attack that killed 58 and injured 78.
It was the most lethal attack launched by the sect in recent months.
A Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) fighter Modu Awami said yesterday that the third would-be bomber, looking about 14, has confessed.
Awami, who helped question the girl, said she was scared because she knew she would kill people.A rescue official who confirmed it, said the girl has given officials information about other planned bombings
