Three Female Suicide Bombers Attacked Borno IDP Camp.

28 killed, 82 wounded after three female suicide bombers attacked Borno IDP Camp .

Injured victims of a female suicide bomber lie on the floor awaiting medical attention as beds were no longer available at a hospital in Maiduguri.

Three women suicide bombers blew themselves up at the entrance to an IDP camp in Borno on Tuesday, killing 28 people and wounding 82, local sources said.

The attack — the latest in a string of assaults in the troubled region — took place in the town of Mandarari, 25 kilometres (15 miles) from Maiduguri, said Baba Kura.

A member of a vigilante force set up to fight jihadists. “Three female bombers triggered their explosive outside of the IDP camp, killing 28 people and wounding 82 others,” Kura said.

The first assailant blew herself up, triggering panic, “People were trying to close their shops when two other female bombers triggered their explosives.

Ibrahim Liman, the head of a local anti-jihadist militia force, confirmed the details of the attack, and more than 80 injured had been taken to Maiduguri hospital.

A source at the hospital said a “huge number” of patients had arrived.
