An infant, a resident and three bombers were killed in multiple suspected suicide attacks in northeast Maiduguri city Saturday, according to police.

The first incident took place in the early hours of Saturday when two female suicide bombers blew up themselves in remote Alakaramti village near the city, police said.

Soon after, two teenaged female bombers infiltrated a crowded area near the scene of the first blast; however, only one of them detonated the explosives strapped on her body.

A three-year-old infant boy and another resident were killed in the incident while four others including the boy's mother were injured, police spokesman Victor Isuku said.

No group claimed responsibility but Boko Haram is suspected to be behind the attack.
