KABUL: (Middle East Press) At least four people have been killed following a terror attack in northeast Nigeria including a female assailant who blew herself up when boarding a bus.
The attack took place on Saturday after the woman tried to target a commercial vehicle but failed to board it as the driver escaped the scene.
According to the witnesses, two passers-by and the assailant’s accomplice were killed in the attack which took place around 11:30 am local time.
“One of the women was wearing the bomb around her waist and it exploded after the bus departed, killing the other woman and two other people,” a security source said.
No individual or group has claimed responsibility for the Saturday bombing.
A similar attack on Thursday saw 18 people killed in the northeastern Nigerian town of Biu. The bombing involved two attackers with one of them gunned down before he could detonate his explosives.
At least 34 people were also killed last week in another attack on a bus station in the city of Kano in northern Nigeria.
