At least 10 people were on Sunday morning feared killed in multiple explosions that rocked Maiduguri, Borno State, locals said.

They told AFP that loud explosions were heard from the areas of Kayamla and Dalori, three days after Maiduguri was attacked by the insurgents, leaving 10 dead and many more injured.

“The explosions were heard from Kayamla and Dalori along Bama Road since around 7:00 am today”, Kursi Yusuf, an employee at the nearby University of Maiduguri, told AFP.

“We are not sure whether the terrorists are planning to invade the town, but the sound vibrating is devastating”, he added.

A resident of Dalori Quarters, 11 kilometres from Maiduguri, Khadija Mustapha, said she had fled her home with her three daughters for fear of being caught in the explosions.

“I don’t know what will happen. The sound of the explosives is really disturbing”, she said. “Many of us have vacated our homes”.

A military officer, who spoke under the condition of anonymity, confirmed the blasts, but said troops were on top of the situation.

“The terrorists will not have their way”, he told AFP.
