A male suicide bomber died after a failed attempt to attack Ummarari community in Borno state this morning. According to a statement from the Nigerian Army, the suicide attack was foiled by the vigilant Troops of 7 Division Garrison Forward Operation Base (FOB) and the Civilian JTF.
The suicide bomber detonated the strapped Improvised Explosive Device (IED) vest on his body, thus killing himself instantly when he was forced to halt based on suspicion that he was carrying suicide bombing material. No other casualty other than the suspected suicide bomber. Very graphic photo of the suicide bomber HERE
