Boko Haram: Dog Dies Fighting Suicide Bomber At Maiduguri Wedding Party
Dozens of people were saved at a wedding party in Maiduguri, yesterday, as a teenage suicide bomber, who attempted to detonate a bomb at the ceremony was attacked by a dog.

Both the dog and suicide bomber died in the explosion that resulted from detonation of the bomb, following the dog attack. 

The dog which, according to the police, belonged to a resident of the neighbourhood where the wedding was holding, stopped the teenage suicide bomber from detonating her explosives in the crowd. 
The suicide bomber was about making her way into the gathering at the wedding ceremony before the dog pounced on her. Vanguard reports
The girl, whose original mission appeared to have been thwarted, detonated her explosives while battling to wriggle herself from the canine grip of the dog. The gallant dog, it was learned, paid the supreme sacrifice as it died alongside the suicide bomber. 
Spokesperson of the Nigeria Police Force in Borno State, Victor Isuku, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, said the incident happened at about 7.30 a.m. at Belbelo community of Jere Local Government Area in Borno State.
