Military pledges resolve to thwart suicide bombers

01 June 2015, 07:04Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Nigerian military has expressed determination to end the frequent spate of suicide bomb attacks and killings by terrorists suspected to members of Boko Haram group.

These attacks have been prevalent in the north eastern parts of the country.

“Everything necessary is being done to stop this unfortunate trend. The terrorists will never recover as they merely intend to pose for publicity," read a statement.

The sentiments follow some renewed suicide bomb attacks by the militant group.

The military said the insurgents perpetrating the attacks were the surviving remnants escaping from the ceaseless assault on their forest enclaves.

"These marauding terrorists are driven only by suicide instincts as the only option left. Somehow, they will all be extinct very soon,” the Defence Headquarters statement read.

This past weekend, it was reported 26 people were killed and scores more injured after suspected Boko Haram suicide bombers attacked a mosque located at the main market in Maiduguri.

On Sunday they planted An Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) at a popular Gamboru Market in Maiduguri, living four persons critically injured.
