The bomb attacks carried out by the terrorists on Saturday were the deadliest in recent times.

These incidents have since generated significant attention both locally and internationally.

Explaining how the incidents happened, the DHQ in a statement today by the Director, Defense Media Operations, Major General Buba Edward says that four female suicide bombers were used to carry out the separate attacks in Gwoza.

Musa made the call during an official visit to the Chief of South Africa National Defense Force, General Rudzani Maphwanya, in Pretoria, South Africa.

This was contained in a statement by the Acting Director, Defense Information, Brigadier-General Tukur Gusau, today in Abuja.
