Suicide Bombers Strike Maiduguri Community, Again



Four suicide bombers on Thursday night, struck Mairanti, a village near Maiduguri.

An explosion was heard at about 10:00 pm when most residents were indoors, but no casualties were recorded except the bombers. However, seven persons were injured.

The northeast coordinator of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) Bashir Garga, confirmed the incident to Channels Television.

According to him, there could be a high infiltration of suicide bombers in the city hence, he advised residents to be extra vigilant.

Mairanti is located around Molai axis of the state capital, which has been a constant target for attacks in recent times.

In April, nine persons were killed including two police officers who were injured when suspected Boko Haram insurgents attacked Jiddari Polo area of Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.
