Borno state considered as the native land of Islamist militant Boko Haram insurgency. No group has accepted the responsibility for the attacks. But according to source, Boko Haram uses the method of female suicide bombers in public places. Boko Haram has focused on Borno since its eight years insurgency in an effort to create an Islamic caliphate.
According to Borno police spokesperson, Victor Isuku, the suicide attacks took place in Kofa, village, 8 km from the state capital, Maiduguri.
He further added that the first suicide bomber detonated near a mosque and killed seven persons. The second bomber detonated in house leaving five dead while 11 injured in both attacks and three bombers also died.
Borno state has been worst hit by the insurgency in which more than 20,000 people killed and almost 2.7 million people forced to flee their homes since 2009. Moreover, on June 7, Boko Haram murdered 14 people in violence and shootings in Maiduguri.
