13-year-old female bomber arrested in Kano

Police in Kano on Wednesday confirmed the arrest of a 13- year-old female suicide bomber and an accomplice who participated in the twin blasts at the famous Kantin Kwari market, on December 10.

At least 10 people were killed in the incident.

However, the young suicide bomber who hails from Damaturu, Yobe, has allegedly confessed to journalists that she was commissioned into Boko Haram by her parents, who live in Bauchi State.

Speaking to journalists in Kano, the state's Commissioner of Police, Mr. Aderenle Shinaba, who was flanked by the state's Director of Directorate of Security Service (DSS), said the arrest of the young bomber and her accomplice was as result of the synergy existing between the police, the DSS, Army, Airforce, Customs, Immigration, Prisons and NSCDC.

Shinaba, who expressed dismay at insinuations that female suicide bombers were from Igbo extraction, said such rumors were unfounded
