Boko Haram: 28 Killed In Two Separate Attacks In Maiduguri

About 28 people have died in two separate early morning suicide bomb attacks in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

One of the blasts occurred near a mosque in Suleimanti area behind the Central Bank of Nigeria while the other was targeted at a residence behind an Internally Displaced People’s camp known as Bakassi, killing all 18 members of the family.

Hospital sources said at least 75 people are receiving treatment for wounds sustained from the explosions.

The injured are mostly worshippers from the Suleimanti Mosque who were attacked shortly after the early morning prayers.

Meanwhile, Civilian Joint Task Force sources had confirmed 15 people dead from last evening’s encounter when assailants stormed Ali Duwari and Jiddari Polo area of the capital city.

Witnesses said the insurgents looted food items and set houses ablaze while beating a retreat.
