Four female suicide bombers killed one person and injured two others in Mora, on Saturday July 1.

According to Punch, Mora is home to the headquarters of the first sector of the Mixed Multinational Force.

An eyewitness said the suicide bombers attempted to enter the town, when they were discovered by a vigilante team, prompting them to detonate the bombs.

A source who spoke to newsmen said “There was one civilian victim and two injured.”

Boko Haram has regularly used suicide bombers in their eight-year insurgency, which seeks to establish a hardline Islamist state.

A regional military force has pushed the insurgents back from captured territories since 2015, but sporadic attacks on soft targets in the region continue to occur.

The Boko Haram violence has claimed at least 20,000 and forced some 2.6 million others to flee their home, triggering a dire humanitarian crisis in the region.
