Boko Haram uses two women suicide bombers in Niger attack, leaves at least 10 dead

A mayor in east Niger has confirmed that Boko Haram suicide bombers and gunmen attack the town Tuesday and at least ten people have killed.

“Two female suicide bombers blew themselves up and gunmen then attacked civilians,” Abba Kaya Issa, the mayor of N’Guigmi, told the AFP news agency on Wednesday.

“We have a provisional toll of 10 dead plus the two suicide bombers,” along with “seven or eight” wounded, Issa said, blaming “Boko Haram elements” for the assault.

“One of the suicide bombers blew herself up in the courtyard of a policeman’s home, which is located inside the police barracks, and the second triggered her explosives belt between the town hall, the police barracks and the prefecture,” added Kaya, referring to the office of the state representative.

N’Guigmi lies in the north of the Diffa region, near Lake Chad, an area infiltration with the Islamic jihadists.

Eight people were killed on Thursday in the village of Karidi, in the Diffa region in southeastern Niger, and 14 died in four attacks on Saturday. Fourteen soldiers have been killed since February 16.
