Metro Sallah Bomb: Multiple Explosions Rock University of Maiduguri



Several suicide bombers attacked different locations at the University of Maiduguri on Sunday night, including the security office where two lives were reportedly lost.

The Borno Police Public Relations Officer, Victor Isukwu, who confirmed the attack around midnight gave sketchy details of casualties recorded.

“Let’s not speculate yet”, he cautioned. “At Unimaid only one male suicide bomber died; three university security personnel injured among which one later died.”

Professor Danjuma Gambo, the spokesperson of the institution, also confirmed the bombings in a BBC Hausa broadcast early on Monday. According to him three suicide attacks took place in the university last night.

The city vibrated with the first blast, which occurred at about 10:15 p.m. Immediately after it was confirmed that it was from the university campus, another explosion occurred at exactly 11 p.m.

It has not been confirmed if the second blast which seemed bigger recorded any casualty, but it was followed by hours of shootings and sounds of military vehicular movements.
