“Twelve Civilian-JTF operatives were killed in all the attack and the rest were civilian victims”, he said.

“The suicide bombers attacked the crowd of mourners and killed seven of them, leaving many others injured”, he said.
19 killed in Boko Haram attacks in northern Nigeria city
Haruna Umar The Associated Press, Jul. 12, 2017:
MAIDUGURI, Nigeria — Four Boko Haram suicide bombers killed 19 people in a series of attacks that targeted a civilian self-defence force and the people who gathered to mourn their deaths, police in Nigeria said Wednesday. It was the deadliest attack in months in the northeastern city of Maiduguri, the birthplace of Boko Haram’s eight-year insurgency.
Borno state police commissioner Damian Chukwu said 23 others were wounded in Tuesday night’s attacks. The police commissioner said 12 of the dead were members of a civilian self-defence force and the other seven people had been mourning them.
At least one of the suicide bombers was female, said a spokesman for the self-defence force, Danbatta Bello. The bombers specifically targeted his colleagues while they were on duty, he said.
“A teenage female suicide bomber actually crept to the sandbag post of our boys at Molai and before they could realize what was happening she detonated herself and killed three of our boys,” Bello said.
“That happened simultaneously with the one that occurred at the tea vendor’s, where seven of our members who took their time off to eat their dinner were killed,” he said.
Boko Haram has increasingly used girls and young women to carry out attacks on marketplaces, checkpoints and other targets. Some young women who escaped extremist group have said girls are drugged and forced to carry out suicide missions.
An Associated Press reporter at the scene saw mourning residents preparing the bodies of the victims for burial.
