Suicide Bomber Closes In On innocent Target, Bomber Gets Rude Awakening

An unnamed dog has been dubbed a hero after the brave animal prevented a female suicide bomber from detonating an improvised explosive device at a wedding in Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria. Known as the playground for Islamic fundamentalist terrorist group, Boko Haram, the number of suicide bombings has been on the rise, however, the brave actions of this dog saved the lives of hundreds on what was, for some, a very special day.

A spokesperson from the Nigeria Police Force, Borno State, has detailed the incident, saying:
“A female suicide bomber with [an improvised explosive device] strapped to her body attempted to infiltrate a wedding ceremony gathering in Belbelo community of Jere.” Thankfully for the citizens in attendance, a watchdog identified the bomber and prevented her from detonating the bomb within the crowd of guests at the wedding with the police statement writing: “[The female bomber] was however prevented by a watchdog, so she had to detonate the IED to kill herself and the dog.” It is believed that during the grapple, the bomber was forced to detonate the explosive as she could not escape the jaws of the dog or move past the courageous animal.

Nigeria is a deeply divided country and has become religiously, politically and tribally fractured as a result of civil unrest, economic downturn, and regional instability. Boko Haram has been linked to the infamous terrorist group in Iraq and Syria, ISIS, and has been one of the principal forces of violence and instability within he country. The group has been implicated in mass shootings, rape, kidnapping of children and the bombing of Western embassies and institutions. In the case of the wedding in Maiduguri, if it wasn’t for the presence of the sweet, brave dog, many people would have been injured or even killed by the teenage bomber.

This act of terror has come shortly after a number of nearby bombings, with three separate individuals detonating explosives in two different locations close to the wedding. Apart from the heroic dog and the suicide bomber, no one else was injured during the incident.
