BREAKING: Boko Haram Strikes in Maiduguri, Leaving Many Dead

Many traders and travellers were feared killed on Wednesday, October 12  as an improvised explosive suspected to have been planted by Boko Haram insurgents went off outside a car park in Maiduguri, Borno state.

The explosion went off at a park popularly called Mun Garage at about 9a.m in the capital city of the North-East Nigerian state.

A witness who said he was lucky to survive the incident said he saw about a dozen bodies covered with blood littering the scene.

“I thank God for sparing my life,” said Usman Kachalla, a local trader. “I don’t know if it is a suicide bomber, we just heard the blast and I saw myself covered with dust.”

An official of the Civilian-JTF, Alhaji Khalil, confirmed the incident to PREMIUM TIMES.

“Yes there was a blast early this morning outside Muna Garage along Mafa road. We have sent our operatives down there; but we have not confirmed the casualty,” said the Civilian-JTF official.
