ICC Note:
On Thursday, three teenage girls were shot by civilian guards and military officials after they ignored a security checkpoint in Nigeria. The three girls were wearing explosives and suspected of planning a triple suicide bomb attack. Two of the girls’ explosives detonated from the bullets while soldiers were able to defuse the third vest. The girls were headed for the market in Madagali, Nigeria which has already sustained multiple attacks over the last several years. Officials assume that Boko Haram sent the girls.

“Explosives strapped to two of the girls exploded from the impact of the shooting, while those on the third girl were defused by soldiers,” he added.
