Explosion Rocks Busy Maiduguri Business District

Explosions_rock_MaiduguriThe ever busy Babban layi business district in Maiduguri, Borno State capital yesterday experienced a loud blast.

Witnesses and traders said they heard a terrifying sound which was followed by dust and heavy gunfire.

An eyewitness who sells building materials said the whole area was thrown into confusion shortly after the blast which attracted heavy presence of the Joint Task Force (JTF) operatives to the area.

“The explosives went up at noon but no one can tell you whether it was targeted at someone because we all fled for safety,” he said.

However, we could not ascertain what caused the blast or if it recorded any casualties because the JTF did not speak on the incident as at the time of this report.
