7 dead in multiple Maiduguri bombings
Despite the victories of the Nigerian army being reported in the media, the Boko Haram insurgent group continues to strike.
Another set of bomb attacks hit the capital city of Borno, Maiduguri, on Tuesday evening, this time leaving 7 people dead.
The explosions took place in the Sajeri area of Maiduguri, which was only just attacked by the sect 2 weeks ago.
According to a local resident, Ibrahim Abdullahi: “I just left the area where the explosion happened when I heard three loud bang that shook the entire area.”
“Curiosity made me to return to see if some of the people I left at the vicinities were not killed in the explosion, but when I got there I saw at least seven corpses being evacuated and dozens of injured were been assisted.”
“I cannot tell if they are female or male suicide bombers for now, but the youth vigilante members and soldiers were involved in evacuating the corpses.”
