IED mistaken for scrap metal explodes, kills 6 Almajiris in Borno

 

Improvised Explosive Device (IED) detonated in Gubio local government area of Borno State, resulting in the tragic death of six Quranic school pupils popularly known as Almajirai in Hausa parlance.

The incident took place yesterday when a metal scavenger unknowingly collected and stored various metallic items in a building in close proximity to a Tsangaya school.

Unfortunately, little did the scavenger know that among the collected metal was an abandoned undetonated IED, which exploded at approximately 2pm, claiming the lives of the children and causing severe bodily harm.

All efforts to get confirmation from security agencies on the incident proved abortive, but our source who spoke to a security source confirmed the deadly blast and shared pictures of the gory scene.
