Two persons have died following a suicide bombing around Muna garage in Maiduguri, the Borno state capital.
The police spokesman in Borno state Victor Isuku confirmed the attack in a statement issued in Maiduguri on Thursday.
“About 2106hours of [sic] Wednesday, an explosion occurred at Muna garage along Gamboru Ngala road Maiduguri.
“Two persons, including the suicide bomber, died on the spot while a Mercedes Benz car with registration number, AX 571 ABJ, parked by the road side was damaged by the impact of the explosion,” Isuku said.
He further said that normalcy had returned to the area.
Three attacks in retrospect
Last Friday, a suspected suicide bomber detonated explosives at the entrance of Muna garage, killing himself.
Another one killed himself and two vigilantes a few metres away from Gamboru-Ngala road, almost the same time.
And then another bomber was killed before gaining entry into the Custom House refugee camp, the same Friday.
