Multiple explosions were heard Sunday on the outskirts of
Maiduguri, a city in northeastern Nigeria that has
repeatedly been attacked by Boko Haram jihadists,
according to reports from locals.
They said loud explosions were heard from the areas of
Kayamla and Dalori, three days after the insurgents
attacked Maiduguri, leaving 10 dead and many more
“The sound of bomb explosions is being heard from
Kayamla and Dalori along Bama Road since around 7:00 am
today,” said Kursi Yusuf, an employee at the nearby
University of Maiduguri. “We are not sure whether the terrorists are planning to invade the town but the sound vibrating is devastating,” he said to AFP.
This just comes after Saturday’s bomb blasts in Abuja, in
which at least 18 people were killed and 41 wounded when
multiple blasts rocked the crowded Kuje and Nyanya
districts of the city.
