A teenage girl packed with explosives by Boko Haram ripped off her vest to avoid taking part in the attack on Borno Internally Displaced Persons camp (IDPs) in Dikwa, Borno State on Tuesday.

Two others with her, however, walked into the middle of hundreds of people lining up for food before they blew themselves up in the attack that killed 58 and injured 78.

A Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) fighter Modu Awami said yesterday that the third would-be bomber, looking about 14, has confessed.

Awami, who helped question the girl, said she was scared because she knew she would kill people.

One source, who was among a group that caught the young woman, told SaharaReporters that the teenager was weeping bitterly and asked people to stay away from her, disclosing that an IED was strapped to her body.

According to our source, when the young woman was asked why she failed to detonate her explosives, she said she was shocked to see so many people dead, adding that she did not want her parents, who were in the camp, to be killed.”

Close to 60 people perished in the Dikwa attack after two young female suicide bombers detonated themselves at a refugee camp for internally displaced persons (IDPs). Eyewitnesses said the two bombers detonated their improvised explosive devices (IEDs) at a kitchen in a refugee camp. The explosives went off at 5.45 a.m. as refugees in the camp queued up for breakfast.
