The suicide bombers blew themselves up while trying to attack a hospital in the Mule area of Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state.
Two suspected suicide bombers struck in Molai, a community on the outskirts of Maiduguri in Borno State.
It was gathered that the suicide bombers, a male and female, had attempted to gain entry into the General Hospital at Molai around 5:30 am.
In the process, they blew themselves, with the loud explosion being heard in parts of Maiduguri.
A source said the building through which they tried to gain access to the hospital was damaged but none of the residents was killed.
“They attempted to access the hospital through a residential building in Mule,” he said.
“The attackers were a male and a female. As they were struggling, the bomb attached to them went off. Luckily, only the evil people were killed.”
