An angry mob lynched a female suicide bomber to death in Nigeria on Monday after her suicide vest failed to detonate.
The suicide bomber was one of two women who security forces believe belonged to the jihadi group Boko Haram. After one of the women successfully detonated her vest, the second woman was discovered by a mob, lynched, and police quickly disarmed her vest.
On Sunday, a Boko Haram suicide bomber attacked a Christmas market, killing two people.
Boko Haram terrorists have killed thousands of people and have displaced millions in their quest to create an Islamic state in Nigeria, while carrying out attacks in other African countries as well. Like ISIS, Boko Haram (which means “Western education is forbidden” in the Hausa dialect of Nigeria) strives to eliminate western influence and implement Sharia law through terror.

A female suicide bomber in Nigeria was lynched to death by an irate mob after her explosive vest failed to detonate.
The woman was killed by people at the Kasuway Shanu cattle market in the central district of Kasuwa in Maiduguri in northeastern Nigeria.
She was killed shortly after another woman had successfully detonated her vest.
It is understood the two attacks were due to be coordinated in order to maximise the number of casualties.
Police confirmed the first terrorist died in the attack while the second woman was ‘lynched by an irate mob in her vicinity’.
