Edet Okon, spokesman of the police in the northern state informed that the suicide attackers, including one female bomber, targeted crowded areas in the two neighboring villages of Mainari Kanuri and Mainari Shuwa, Xinhua reported.

The two villages are located in remote areas in Konduga district of the northern state. Okon added that security was immediately beefed up in the area and the Maiduguri Metropolis, following the attack. Boko Haram, a militant group emerging from northeastern Nigeria, was said to be responsible for the suicide blasts.

On Thursday, four suicide bombers had blown up themselves in a failed attack on the outskirts of Maiduguri. Some suspected Boko Haram fighters attacked a military base some 12 km to Maiduguri, also on Thursday.
