Updated: Five Boko Haram Suicide Bombers Hit 3 Locations In Maiduguri, Nigeria

Although we are headquartered in Washington D.C. USA, our reporters and editors are working around the globe to cover what you care about. We invite you to donate to our fundraiser to help us keep our quality news free and available for all.


At least three persons were killed in Maiduguri, the capital of Nigeria’s northeastern state of Borno on Wednesday, after five Boko Haram suicide bombers hit three locations there.

The National Management Emergency Agency, NEMA, said the five blasts occurred in three locations around Muna Garage area of Maiduguri metropolis at about 4 a.m.

The first location, Muna Kumbori, is an unofficial host community camp housing 199 internally displaced persons. It was attacked by three suicide bombers, leaving two persons dead.

The second location, Muna Dagalti, was attacked by a suicide bomber. One person was killed there.

The third location, Muna Bulaya, was attacked by a suicide bomber who was the only casualty.

NEMA information officer in the northeast, Abdulkadir Ibrahim, said the bombers were all male adults.

At least 20 people with various degrees of injuries were administered first aid by Emergency response team and transported to the state specialist hospital while the remains of the dead have been deposited in the mortuary, NEMA said.

Boko Haram has increased attacks in recent months after the Nigerian government declared last December that the “godless, mindless” militants had been defeated.

About 25, 000 civilians have been killed in Nigeria since 2009 by Boko Haram while millions remain displaced.

Thousands of people have been kidnapped, including the Chibok girls who were abducted from their school in 2014 and remain missing till date.
