Wednesday 15/3/2017, four female jihadists blew themselves up near a bus station in northeastern Nigeria killing two people.
According to the country’s disaster management agency — National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), the suicide blast happened at around 1.15 am (0015 GMT) in the Usmanti area on the outskirts of Maiduguri.
Maiduguri has experience several such attack in the recent past weeks.
"Two men were killed due to the explosion while about 16 injured people were administered first aid," the agency's spokesman for the northeast, Ibrahim Abdulkadir, said in a statement.
Usmanti is near a sprawling camp for people who have been driven from the remote countryside by Boko Haram violence and, increasingly, the need for food.
The Islamist group has frequently used young women and girls as human bombs.
