Twin Bomb Explosions Rock Maiduguri as Security Agents Discovers Bombs Planted in a Market
Two loud explosions were heard this Sunday evening around 9:56 p.m. in Maiduguri, capital of Borno State. The explosions came the same day that three bombs were discovered at a market earlier in the day.
The loud explosions were followed by the sound of gunshots, but details of the specific location of the explosions as well as possible casualties and damage remained unclear. A resident of Maiduguri, Bitrus Wida, told our correspondent, “I heard loud explosions tonight but we don’t know the directions. As I am speaking to you, frightened children are crying all over the place.”
Earlier, two teenagers were arrested at the Monday market after they had planted some bombs, according to security agents.
