BARELY 24 hours after the Nigerian military reported that about 100 people had been killed following an attack by insurgents on Dalori village in Borno State, reports said Maiduguri, capital city, had been bombed today, Monday, February 1.
Details of the bombing remained sketchy as at press time, a tweet by Sahara Reporters confirmed that the twin blasts occurred this morning.
The Nigerian troops were also reported to have been battling the suspected Boko Haram terrorists as explosions and gunfire were heard in Maiduguri, the Borno state capital, on January 30.
Muhammadu Buhari had on Sunday, January 31, 2016, lamented the recent spate of bombings in the country, stating that the insurgents were simply out to embarrass his administration.
He, therefore, asked Nigerians to remain calm and continue to be security conscious in the wake of the recent attacks by the terrorists.
