Bombs have exploded in Shuwa, in Adamawa State, on Sunday morning, while Christians were preparing for Sunday mass, and has killed two persons, while injuring one innocent little girl.
The bomb blasts attack is suspected to have been launched by the technically defeated boko haram insurgents, as proclaimed by the Information Minister, Lai Mohammed, using a rocket-propelled launcher, a day after the Governorship and State House of Assembly elections were held.
Mohammed Sanusi, the District Head of Duhu, said: “There is a bomb blast in Shuwa. Two female suicide bombers carried out the attacks. A little girl affected by the blast has been taken to Shuwa Missionary Health Centre. The female bombers had planned to launch the attacks on Churchgoers, but the bomb detonated prematurely, killing the female bombers.”
“There is a probability of another unexploded bomb in the area, which the Security Forces are trying to unearth”, he said.
However, the two female suicide bombers alleged to have been the masterminds of the reported bomb blasts, were said to have crept into the town, behind the Catholic Missionary Health Centre, unnoticed.
