According the official, the incident occurred while the displaced persons were queuing up to receive food rations.

“It was a suicide bomb attack by three females. Two of the suicide bombers were successful while the other one was not. It happened at a camp at Dikwa, which is far from Maiduguri, while the IDPs were waiting to collect food. The suicide bombers sneaked in and detonated the bombs,” he explained.

“Dikwa is a terrible place. It will take time because these people (suicide bombers) are among them. The place is not accessible at all. Fifty-eight people lost their lives and 78 people were wounded.”
