Nigerians have been warned to be vigilant as female suicide bombers have now found a new dubious way of bombing people without being detected, BBC reports.

The report states that female suicide bombers are now carrying babies to avoid detection in their attacks, authorities warn.


According to authorities, an attack in the town of Madagali on 13 January saw two women detonate their devices, killing themselves, two babies, and four others. They had passed a vigilante checkpoint, mistaken for civilians because they were carrying infants.

Female attackers have been seen before, but officials said the use of babies could signal a “dangerous” trend. The insurgent group Boko Haram is widely suspected of having carried out the attack.

Four women attacked Madagali located in Adamawa State, which was recaptured from Boko Haram in 2015. Two were stopped at a security checkpoint, and detonated their devices, officials said.

The two women carrying infants, however, were not stopped, and exploded their own devices past the security point.

Boko Haram is known for using women, including young girls, as suicide bombers, notes the BBC.

Nigerians have been warned to be vigilant and watch out for women carrying babies to avoid further undetected terrorists passing without being caught.
