Seven killed as female suicide bomber hits Borno market


A female suicide bomber on Thursday struck at a market in Borno State, killing at least seven people.
Over 20 others are said to be seriously injured, raising fears of a higher death toll.
The female suicide bomber attacked the popular Biu Market at about 3:15pm.
The market was said to be in full swing when the bomber struck.
An attempt last month by dreaded sect, Boko Haram, to overrun Biu was repelled by the military.
As at press time, no one or group has claimed responsibility for the blast.
But it follows the normal pattern of the atrocities perpetrated by dreaded sect, Boko Haram.
Of recent, Boko Haram has been making use of female suicide bombers.
Some of the female suicide bombers are believed to be part of the schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram from the Chibok government college.
