7 Dead and 18 Injured as Suicide Bombers Wreak Havoc in Maiduguri

Multiple suicide bomb blasts have killed at least six people and wounded 18 others in the northeastern Nigerian city of Maiduguri, security sources told journalists on Wednesday.

The attacks happened around 03:30 GMT on Wednesday at the Muna Garage area on the outskirts of the city.

Two suicide bombers blew themselves up at an unofficial camp for displaced people, while a third bomber was killed by his explosive device before he could reach his target.

Those wounded have been taken to hospital to receive treatment.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility but Maiduguri has been frequently targeted by fighters of the Boko Haram armed group.

More details to come.
