Improvised Explosive Devices detonated by three suicide bombers in Maiduguri, Borno State, killed at least seven people on Tuesday, the Red Cross and a vigilante group member told Reuters.

The IEDs were detonated at Sajeri, a community on the outskirts of the city centre, at about 8:30pm, said Ba’ana Musa, a member of a youth vigilante group that helped to evacuate people.

“Seven dead bodies have been evacuated from the scene of the blasts”, said a Red Cross official.

Reuters reports that the explosions are the worst attacks on the city since 54 people were killed and 90 injured in bombings three weeks ago.
