So SAD! Dog Dies Fighting Female Teenage Suicide Bomber @ Maiduguri Wedding Party
According to the Police, the teenage suicide bomber was making her way into the gathering at the wedding ceremony when the dog pounced on her.
The girl thereafter detonated her explosive while battling to wriggle herself from the ferocious grip of the dog.
The blast killed the dog and the bomber.
The incident happened at about 7.30 a.m, in Belbelo community of Jere Local Government Area in Borno State.
Speaking on the incident, the spokesperson of the Nigeria Police Force in Borno state, Victor Isuku said:
''Information just received indicate that today at about 0733hours (7.33am), a female bomber with IED strapped to her body, attempted to infiltrate a wedding ceremony gathering in Belbelo community of Jere LGA.
''She was however prevented by a watch dog, so she had to detonate the IED to kill herself and the dog.
''The dog was owned by resident in the locality.'' Said Isuku, a deputy superintendent of police.
The Police however did not say if the dog had training in bomb detection because it is not common in Nigeria for dogs owned by civilians to be so trained, PremiumTimes reports.
Meanwhile, in the early hours of the first Sunday of April, 2017, (today), three persons, all suspected Boko Haram bombers, died in their own explosions, when they attempted to invade Maiduguri, the Borno state capital, with explosive vests strapped around their bodies, an official said.
*The dog got me emotional.. He's such a hero.*
