At least 10 persons are feared killed in a bomb explosion from a suicide bomber riding in a Keke Napep in Maiduguri.
The explosion, which occurred at a crowded commercial area in Maiduguri, went off at around 11am on Saturday morning.
Witnesses said many people were affected. Residents said the suicide bomber tried to enter Baga fish market motor park.
A top security officer, who requested not to be named because he is not authorized to speak to the media, confirmed to Premium Times the number of people killed.
“About ten persons were confirmed killed so far but the blast was massive”, said the security officer. “We are still taking count of casualties.”
It will be recalled that the military warned that Boko Haram insurgents are set to carry out more suicide bombing attacks in their bid to regain territories the military has acquired from them.
