(Voice of the Persecuted) Nigeria:  Two suicide bombers attacked the Kashuwa Shanu market in Maiduguri, the capital city of Borno State on Monday morning. The attack follows Nigerian President Buhari’s statement circulated on Christmas Day, which  declared a major victory against Boko Haram insurgents and announced the fall of the last enclave of Boko Haram militants in Sambisa forests to Nigerian troops.

According to Sahara Reporters, the bombers did not succeed in their mission as they only succeeded in killing themselves. One of the suicide bombers blew up about 8:30 am while a second bomber was arrested before he could detonate a suicide vest wrapped around his body.

On Sunday morning, two suspected suicide bombers were killed after attempting to launch attacks in Cameroon. The young men suspected to be members of Boko Haram killed themselves after detonating bombs attached to them at the entrance of a market in Mora, a small town in the far north region near the border with Nigeria. No other victim was reported.
