Suicide bombers hit Maiduguri, kill many | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

Two suicide bombers struck in Maiduguri, capital of Borno state, in the early hours of Saturday, killing nine people.

Sani Datti, spokesman of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), said 24 persons who sustained injuries have been taken to hospitals.

A witness said the first attack, which occurred at 6am, was in front of a camp for the internally displaced persons (IDP), while the second happened minutes later.

According to NAN, residents saw bodies being carried into an ambulance by government emergency services.

This is happening 17 days after a convoy with military escort was targeted in the state.

Ten people died in the tragic incident.

The military is yet to make official comment on the latest attacks, which occurred less than 24 hours after Rabe Abubakar, defence spokesman, said the military had succeeded in degrading the sect.
