Two dogs on Friday foiled an attempt by two suicide bombers to detonate bombs at the Moloi General Hospital in Maiduguri, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
The foiled attack is the latest in a string of deadly attacks on soft targets by the Boko Haram group in Nigeria’s northeast, the hotbed of the Islamic insurgency.
The Chairman of the Borno State Emergency Management Agency, Mr Fatomi Ahmed, confirmed the development in an interview with a NAN correspondent after the attack.
Ahmed said that the agency had deployed a rescue team to evacuate debris at the scene of the foiled attack.
The Spokesman of the Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF), Malam Bello Danbatta, who also confirmed the incident, said that the dogs and the bombers died instantly in the attack but that no other life was lost.
An eye-witness, Mr Rilwan Isah, told NAN that persistent barking by the two dogs prevented the suicide bombers from gaining entry into the hospital premises.
He explained that the insurgents, a male and female, were attacked by the dogs, forcing them to detonate the explosives strapped to their bodies.
Isah said that the dogs belonged to members of the CJTF and had been deployed to the area for rescue operations.
The eye-witness said further that the dogs attacked the suicide bombers when the animals sensed that the two persons were strangers.
Isah said that the explosion blew the suicide bombers to pieces and killed the dogs.
“We heard the male suicide bomber shouting in his dialect and the dogs barking and going after them.
“Only the suicide bombers and the dogs were killed in the attack,” he stressed.
Insurgents have been packing bloody punches in Maiduguri and other northeast cities in recent weeks, although the military authorities had said that the group had been degraded.
Thousands of lives have been lost in several communities in northern Nigeria since the insurgency started more than eight years ago.

The Nigerian Army redeployed, canceled or amended postings of seven major generals, 45 brigadier generals and 597 other officers last week, in one of its most far-reaching shake-up exercise in recent years.
No reasons were readily cited for the new postings and cancellations and amendments of previous postings, but military sources told KING DAVID MEDIA over the weekend that the Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, approved the exercise on July 18.
Amongst the seven major generals affected, the Army canceled the redeployment of Adeniyi Oyebade, two months after he was transferred from being General Officer Commanding of Nigerian Army 1 Division, Kaduna, to Army Headquarters in Abuja as chief of logistics.
But no new posting was assigned to Mr. Oyebade, who was indicted last year in the December 2015 massacre of Shiites in Zaria.
The shake-up was announced in a memo with reference number MS/G1/3OO/2O7 and signed by I.O. Rabiu, a major general and Military Secretary, military sources said.
About 100 Nigerian Army formations, units and departments within and outside the country were copied in the memo, KING DAVID MEDIA learnt.
Redeployment has become a frequent feature in the Nigerian Army since Mr. Buratai assumed office two years ago, but none of them was as sweeping as the recent exercise.
Three major shake-ups had been recorded within the last seven months, with the most recent affecting 147 officers in May.
A total of 227 officers were affected in a similar exercise last December.
A breakdown of the remaining 597 affected officers shows that they included 197 colonels, 50 lieutenant colonels, 99 majors, 138 captains, 111 lieutenants and two second lieutenants.
Thirty-eight out of the total 649 officers had their postings canceled or deleted.
That included two major generals, one brigadier general, seven colonels, five lieutenant colonels, 10 majors, eight captains and five lieutenants.
While eight of the officers had their postings deleted, the redeployment of 30 others were amended by the Army.
“It is the responsibility of all formation/unit commanders whose officers are affected by this posting to implement accordingly.
“Officers must take over on the effective dates indicated.
Formation/unit commanders will be held responsible for lapses in the implementation of the directives contained therein,” the memo stated.
Four Boko Haram terrorists and members of their respective families, on Saturday, surrendered to troops of 27 Task Force Brigade of the Nigerian Army.
Their surrender was announced in a statement issued by Brigadier-General SK Usman, Director, Army Public Relations. The statement quoted the terrorists as saying that they were fleeing Boko Haram hideouts in Kafe, Njubulla and Buk in Damboa Local Government Area of Borno State.
The same day, the statement added, troops of the same formation, with the assistance of vigilantes, arrested a suspected Boko Haram terrorist at Bungai in Gujba Local Government Area of Yobe State.
The suspect, Madu Kwari, 25, was nabbed at about 6 p.m. as he fled a Boko Haram hideout. He was in the company of three other terrorists, who are currently at large.
Similarly, the statement disclosed that troops of 159 Battalion of the Nigerian Army arrested one Hassan Yusuf, 43.
The suspect, described as a logistics supplier to Boko Haram, hails from Dangana in Chad Republic.
He was arrested while attempting to cross into Chad with smuggled spare parts and other items in a Toyota Hilux vehicle with registration number AE-646-VBY.
The statement explained that he is currently undergoing further interrogation.
Six governors elected under People’s Democratic Party (PDP) are scheduled to visit President Muhammadu Buhari in London, which is being arranged by the office of the National Security Adviser, Major General Babagana Munguno (retd.)
The governors visiting the president are Udom Emmanuel (Akwa Ibom), Dave Umahi (Ebonyi), Abdulaziz Yari (Zamfara), and Abiola Ajimobi (Oyo).
“Our colleagues are going to London to see the President. But I’m not happy that someone like the Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, or his Rivers State counterpart, Mr. Nyesom Wike, is not on the delegation. Though there are PDP governors on the delegation, we know ourselves and also know those we know are truly part of the opposition and those close to the ruling All Progressives Congress. he governors had been directed to be at the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, tomorrow (Tuesday). From there, they will fly to the United Kingdom,” a governor said in a report.
Meanwhile, according to another governor, the idea was mooted by some APC Governors.
“Yes, they mentioned it (visit); some APC governors mooted the idea but I don’t want to say anything on that for now,” he said.
The President accommodated some APC Governors and leaders last Sunday.

Four National Youth Service Corps members of the (NYSC) serving in Sokoto State, recently, escaped death in a ghastly accident that involved a Sharon Volkswagen car with registration number Kwara LAF 529 XA.
The accident, however, claimed the life of the driver of the car, Abdullahi Issa, popularly known as Ola-Mummy.
An eyewitness told Sunday Sun that the vehicle took off from Maraba motor park, Ilorin, Kwara State with eight passengers en route Sokoto State.
According to the eyewitness, who escaped from the car unhurt, the incident happened about 8p.m ,few kilometers to Mayama town.
“We were about to enter Mayama town when suddenly a motorcyclist riding in the night without head light crossed the road. In the process of dodging the motorcyclist, we ran into a pothole and our car somersaulted many times. Few of us escaped through the windows, but the driver was not lucky. He was trapped inside the car. We tried to rescue him but it was too late because of the head injuries he sustained,” he said.
When Sunday Sun visited Mayama General hospital on Thursday night, the lifeless body of the late driver was sighted in another car, ready to be taken to Ilorin, Kwara State for burial.
The Kebbi State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Suleiman Mustapha, confirmed the incident in a telephone interview yesterday.
He said: “We have warned these motorcyclists to stop riding at night without light. If you remember, a motorcyclist caused the last accident along Koko road that claimed many lives. We have held many enlightenment programmes for them, yet they refused to change.”

680 members of the Civilian Joint Task Force have died trying to repel Boko Haram terrorist attacks in Borno from 2012 to date, the groups Legal Officer, Mr Junril Gunda, has said.
Gunda said in an interview in Maiduguri on Friday that in spite of the high casualty figure, the JTF remain undaunted in its resolve to protect communities in the state from the terrorists.
“The group which is nonprofitable started in 2012 when our youths picked up sticks and said no more Boko Haram and they successfully push the terrorist group out of Maiduguri.
“We don’t have any other home than Borno, we are therefore working tirelessly to provide civic protections against any form of threat represented by Boko Haram.
“Sadly a lot of our youths have paid the supreme price, there is hardly any day you will hear of an attack without one of our civilian JTF killed and that does not mean we will stop defending our land of terrorism.
“As you can see I am a lawyer by profession, this is my Chamber and I am happy to also be one of the Civilian JTF. I was also trained for eight months on light arms use by the military.
“If I see a Boko Haram now, I can take him down with my gun.
“It was necessary to train our civilian JTF on the use of arms because they always move along with the military in the front line during operations.
“Our civilian JTF had taken part in almost all the operations going on in Sambisa forest.
“It was also necessary because they are always the first to sight Boko Haram suspects during checks in the state capital.
“Boko Haram members are not afraid of the military, they are afraid of the civilian JTF; they believe if a civilian JTF kill any of them, they will go to hell. Many of them have said this during their testimonies,” said Gunda.
According to him, no fewer than 23,000 youth vigilantes have been registered under the body to provide civic protection in every nooks and cranny of the state.
He said that the job of the Civilian JTF was purely to stop Boko Haram insurgents from causing havoc in the society.
Gunda said there were numerous challenges confronting the group because the members were not been paid for the job.
“Like I said earlier, it was a voluntary thing, so no one was paid any penny for the job and because of some difficulties and poor living conditions of the youths, some engage in begging to fend for themselves.
“It was as the result of this that Borno State Government decided to empower 1,400 of them as vanguards with the acronym BOYES and were being paid N15, 000 monthly.
“Government and other nongovernmental organizations must also give support to the other 20,000 youths who were not empowered.
“They should also give priority attention to widows of our deceased youths because we are left to carter for their welfare.
“Government should sponsor their children and give them a better life in recognition of the selfless sacrifices made by their parents,” said Gunda.

Lawrence Mukiibi: The internet has been buzzing with comments and mixed reactions after photos of a billionaire educationist's burial emerged on social media showing the astonishing number of his children.
A 71-year-old popular Ugandan billionaire educationist and founder of St Lawrence schools, Prof Lawrence Mukiibi, was laid to rest on Friday, June 1st in his ancestral home at Katenden, but one thing that left mourners in shock, was the number of his children, whom he had outside wedlock as he had no official wife.
According to multiple online reports, eyewitnesses in attendance at the funeral, counted over 30 children of the deceased, some of them as young as few months, as the late billionaire reportedly fathered more than 80 kids from his students.
While speaking in an interview with NBS Television, in April 2016, Prof. Mukiibi was asked the number of his children, he said: “It is a taboo to ask an African man how many children he has, especially a man of my age. But I have children, I keep adopting.”
The New Vision reports that his family is planning to conduct DNA tests to confirm the paternity of the children, and several pregnant women have also come forward to claim that the late educationist was responsible for their pregnancies.
Keti Nandi, the officer in charge of child and family affairs in Kampala Metropolitan East, have advised the family of Mukiibi to continue providing assistance to the expectant mothers up to birth. Then after that, they can carry out DNA tests to ascertain the paternity of the children.
“My appeal is that whoever is pregnant should not be undermined because of that. Even if you (family) denied the pregnancy, the responsibility is upon you people to make sure that these women are catered for until they give birth,. It will be after birth that the DNA will take over,” Nandi said.
