The Boko Haram bombers were said to have been killed at Umulari Mulai, Maiduguri-Damboa road, about six kilometres from the capital city.

According to Vanguard, the bombers were sighted around 1:00 am by the vigilantes. One of them reportedly denoted her bomb when the vigilantes asked ‘who is there.’

Report said the second bomber ran and hid in a hole before she was later found and shot dead. Her bomb was later detonated.

Pulse recalls that Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, had on March 24, released a videoto prove to his followers that he is alive and urging them to surrender.

The Nigerian Army has however discredited the footage, noting it could be a ploy to distract the military from its ongoing assault on the terrorists' dens in sambisa forest.

The video has also been subjected to forensic analysis to ascertain its authenticity.
