Boko Haram suicide bombers on Sunday night attacked an internally displaced persons’ camp in Nigeria, killing at least three persons and injuring seventeen others, just hours before attacking a military post in Cameroon on Monday morning.

“At about 11.20 pm yesterday (Sunday) two suicide bombers (a male and female) detonated their improvised explosive device at Dalori 1 Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp leading to the death of three IDPs while seventeen others were injured,” the Nigerian National Management Emergency Agency (NEMA) said in a statement.

“Another incident occurred at Dalori 2 IDP camp where a suicide bomber was intercepted leading to the death of the suicide bomber. Injured persons have been administered with first aid and moved to hospitals in Maiduguri,” spokesman Abdulkadir ibrahim of NEMA in the North East who signed the statement, said.

Dalori is located in Borno, a state in Nigeria’s northeastern region. Several similar camps are scattered around the country to host Nigerians who have been displaced by Boko Haram.

In Cameroon, at least two soldiers were killed on Monday morning when a military post in Gloudjan, the Mayo-Sava department in the country’s far north, came under attack.

Cameroonian newspaper, L’Oeil du Sahel, first reported the attack.

Boko Haram has increased attacks in Nigeria and Cameroon in recent months, leaving many people dead and raising questions about claims by authorities in both countries that the terrorists had been defeated.
