There was pandemonium in Maiduguri the Borno State Capita today as explosions rock the city on Christmas Day.

 

 

 

At least four bomb blasts were recorded in Maiduguri, the capital of Born State, on Saturday, multiple sources told Sahara reporters.

 

 

 

Sources said the bomb explosions happened around cashew  Plantation in the Polo General area of the ancient town as residents were preparing for morning prayer.

 

 

 

It was learnt that those within the area scampered for safety amid sounds of explosions.

 

 

 

‘’We were woken with explosions around 5.30 am today. The explosives landed in several areas around  Cashew  Plantation within the metropolis,’’ one of the sources told Sahara reporters.

 

 

 

 

It is unclear if Boko Haram insurgents are behind the attacks, which happened a few hours after the group launched multiple rocket attacks on the city ahead of President  Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to Borno to inaugurate projects done by the State government.

 

 

 

The insurgents were said to have launched the attack from the outskirt of Auno, which is about 15 kilometres away from the city.

 

 

 

The explosives landed in several areas including  Ngomari, Bulumkutu, Ajilari, and Ayafe communities within the metropolis, killing at least five children.

 

 

Recall that Boko Haram has continued to operate in different parts of the North-East, especially in Borno State despite the claim of the government that the sect has been defeated.
