The army on Saturday said there was no need to panic after explosions rocked some communities in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.
In a statement signed by spokesperson Brigadier-General Onyema Nwachukwu, the army described the attack as a “security breach by suspected Boko Haram and Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists who attempted to maintain potency early this morning, 4th December, 2021, with explosions in the outskirt of Maiduguri state Metropolitan Council.”
The explosions reportedly hit Gomari community and about 1,000 Housing Estate in Maiduguri but no deaths was said to have been reported.
The army further said that “This unfortunate incident has caused some level of damage and apprehension in residential areas. Although, no life was lost, sadly a minor sustained injury”.
