Boko Haram ‘Takes Over’ Maiduguri, Embarks On Massive Bombing Spree

Reports indicate that at least six persons have been killed in an early morning twin bomb attack, in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, on Saturday, an eyewitness has confirmed.

The twin blasts, which echoed across the city, occurred at two different spots, about 1 km apart.

The first blast went off at about 7 a.m. at a coffee drinking spot, near the Bakassi IDP camp, along the popular Maiduguri-Biu road.

“Six persons were reportedly killed in the blast, and have been evacuated to the hospital,” said Yunus Musa, a resident of the area.

Shortly after that, at about 7.35 a.m, another blast went off in a tricycle, near the NNPC fuel depot, along Damboa Road, killing a woman and the rider. It was not clear who the bomber was, between the woman and the tricycle driver.
