Female Suicide Bomber Kills Three in Nigeria

Al Jazeera, July 31, 2014

A female suicide bomber blew herself up in a college in northern Nigeria’s biggest city of Kano, killing three people and critically wounding another seven in the fourth such attack by a woman in Kano in less than a week, a security source said.

The bomber targeted youths who were looking at a notice board for national youth service in Kano Polytechnic, the sourceĀ told Reuters news agency on Wednesday.

Government spokesman Mike Omeri also confirmed the attack in a statement to the AFP news agency.

“At about 2.30 pm (1.30pm GMT), another female suicide bomber exploded an improvised explosive device at the Kano State polytechnic.”

The armed group Boko Haram, which is fighting for an Islamic state in religiously-mixed Nigeria, has repeatedly bombed Kano as it targets areas away from its northeast heartlands.

Two female suicide bombers blew themselves up at a trade show and a petrol station in Kano on Monday, killing one other person and injuring at least six others.

On Sunday, a female suicide bomber killed herself but no one else while trying to target police officers.

In a separate incident on Tuesday, two suicide bombers killed 13 people in attacks on two mosques in the town of Potiskum, in Yobe state in the northeast, a medical official there told Reuters.

Though much of the violence is concentrated in the remote northeast, they have struck across Nigeria in several bomb attacks since April.

On Sunday, they mounted a cross-border attack into Cameroon, killing at least three people there and kidnapping the wife of the vice prime minister.

    They can do whatever they want, provided they stay in Africa where they belong.

      She can have this one! Dylan Bleier, Obama worshipping, Oberlin College hate crime hoaxer. What are the odds he’s still a virgin? And Bleier, if you’re reading this, kindly show us a picture of you and a girlfriend, ANY girlfriend.

      • D.B. Cooper

        She can have this virgin too. He’s already waiting for her. That’s 2 already. 70 to go?

        • D.B. Cooper

          Why not? It’s the freaking weekend. Here’s virgin #3 for the dearly departed female suicide bomber.

            Rumor has it, he’s never been with a woman either.

      Hahaha, I gotta admit, that was the very first thought that crossed my mind. I mean really, what’s their motivation? I never personally saw the appeal of the 72 virgins in the first place. One or two, okay, but 72?

      Maybe they don’t have to wear a burqa in heaven or something?

      More than likely she’ll get 72 rapists.

    • NoMosqueHere

      She wants 72 lifetimes worth of blond hair dye.

    I have said this about our Central American/Mexican invaders and have probably said it about Muslims: we need to get over the concept of “innocent women and children”. The days of wars between two opposing armies of soldiers is over. In our fight for survival all non-whites must be considered combatants. This includes 12 year olds. It includes women. It includes old men for that matter. They are all part of the army poised against. Even the one’s who seem innocent. A small boy can shoot a gun. And their women are perhaps our biggest enemy because they give birth to more of them to come after us. This is total war.

    I guess the regional Ebola outbreak isn’t bad enough for these dimwit fanatics.

    Ever notice that the top brass in these militant Islamic organizations NEVER blow themselves up? No, they get useful idiots to do it for them. When Bin Laden was confronted by the American military who came into his home to get him, he grabbed one of his “wives” and used her as a human shield. Yeah, Obama orchestrated attacks on innocent people but wasn’t man enough to stand on his own.

    Muslim feminism.

    It is only a matter of time until Muslim suicide bombers begin to kill people in the United States, and when it becomes dangerous to attend any event they may disapprove of.

      Yea I give it until September 2001.

      They did that on 9/11. I was locked up in DCJ at the time. The Denver cops tried putting a Muslime in our unit a few days afterward.

      We looked at each other, and nobody said a word, and then we all stood up. That guy completely understood he was going to be torn to pieces. The pigs got him out of there. I was 50 feet from that Muzzie, and I could see in his eyes that he understood that we were going to tear him to pieces. The deputy sure knew it, too. Her eyes grew very wide when she saw us all stand up without any talking, and then we just looked at that dirtbag and the deputy. I saw a guy hang himself once, and I have been to battle, but I had never before seen that complete understanding on anyone’s face before: we were going to kill him in half, and he and that deputy both knew it.

      They’re coming over the southern border, mixed in with the squat monsters. Even if they act out with violence, they will have support from leftists, the ACLU, and third worlders Don’t expect a big bomb; they want to kill us slowing with a thousand cuts.

    This must be causing the Feminists to experience massive ideological dissonance.
