A prospective suicide bomber arrested by vigilante group also known as Civilian JTF yesterday revealed that 50 females trained as suicide bombers have been unleashed on Maiduguri, the Borno State capital with a target to kill 100,000 people before the end of December.
The female suicide bomber, after her arrest disclosed that 50 suicide bombers have been initiated by the sect and are ready to cause havoc on Maiduguri and its environs before the end of 2014.
Sources said that two female suicide bombers were arrested, one at the entrance gate of the University of Maiduguri, while the other was apprehended at the busy post office area of the metropolis yesterday.
The arrest came on the heels of the twin explosions trigered by two female suicide bombers who blew themselves up in a crowded Maiduguri market on Monday, killing 22 civilians and injuring 48 others.
It was gathered that the disclosure has heightened tensions in Maiduguri.
Already, visitors and students of the University of Maiduguri have to undergo serious checks by security operatives before being allowed into the campus.
It was also gathered that a ban on students entering the campus with their vehicles was also imposed. For now, only lecturers are allowed into the institution with their vehicles after rigorous checks and identification.
The Civilian JTF have been put on red alert to avert any disaster.
In the last few days, four female suicide bombers have claimed the lives of over 100 people in two incidents at the Maiduguri Monday Market.
