A dog had reportedly died saving lives of several people at a wedding party in Maiduguri, Borno after it attacked a teenage bomber.
The dog which belonged to a resident of the neighbourhood where the wedding took place stopped the teenage bomber from detonating her explosives in the crowd.
According to the police, the teenage bomber was making her way into the gathering at the wedding ceremony when the dog pounced on her. The girl thereafter detonated her explosive while battling to wriggle herself from the ferocious grip of the dog.
The blast killed the dog and the bomber. However it is not known if the dog had training in bomb detection because it is not common in Nigeria for dogs owned by civilians to be so trained.
Heroic dog if you ask me!
