The Boko Haram bombers blew up the dogs in the attack.
Two dogs on Friday foiled an attempt by two suicide bombers to detonate bombs at the Moloi General Hospital in Maiduguri.
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 newsmen after the attack.
Ahmed said the agency had deployed a rescue team to evacuate debris at the scene of the foiled attack.
