Female Suicide Bombers Now Carry Babies

The Federal government has called on Nigerians to be vigilant as female suicide bombers in Nigeria are now carrying babies to avoid detection.

Recall that an attack in the town of Madagali on 13 January saw two women detonate their devices, killing themselves, two babies, and four others.

Nigerian officials said that  female attackers have been seen before, but the use of babies could signal a “dangerous” trend.

In 2015, four women attacked Madagali located in Adamawa State, which was recaptured from Boko Haram. Two were stopped at a security checkpoint, and detonated their devices, officials said.The two women were carrying infants, and thus were not stopped, and exploded their own devices past the security point.

In early December, two female suicide attackers killed at least 45 people in the same town, after they detonated their devices in a busy market.
