Security Operatives Avert Fresh Bomb Blast In Maiduguri

Maiduguri, the commercial hub of Borno state, was on Tuesday night hit by multiple explosions, barely days after suicide attacks in a mosque in the city, that killed 12 worshippers.

It is understood that at least six powerful explosions occurred between 10:45 and 11:00 PM last night.

It was gathered that four explosives were detonated simultaneously while two other powerful sounds were also heard some 15 minutes later.

Unlike the previous explosions, the current blast has a wide-range sound effect, sending its powerful sounds to many parts of the metropolis, forcing roofs to shake.

It is not clear where the blast occurred yet and efforts to get the details of the blasts were not successful as none of the official security spokespersons was available for comments.

However, a security source told NAN that soldiers had fired an artillery at a convoy of suspected Boko Haram insurgents who were trying to attack the city which caused series of explosions.

A series of blasts have hit the metropolis recently, the latest happening on Monday where 12 persons were said to have died.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian Army said that a high-profile Boko Haram terrorist and three other jihadists have surrendered themselves to troops of 120 Task Force Battalion at Goniri.
