Suicide bombers on Tuesday evening attacked war torn Maiduguri killing no fewer than seven persons and injured several others.
Local residents said three suicide bombers stormed the Sajeri area of the state capital at about 8.30pm and detonated the explosives on them.
The area, it was gathered, is densely populated and has been the target of terrorists in recent time. Only two weeks ago, four female bombers had rocked the Sajeri area of the town, killing more than 50 persons and injuring 20 others.
Giving account of Tuesday’s explosions, a local resident, Ibrahim Abdullahi, said: “I just left the area where the explosion happened when I heard three loud bang that shook the entire area.
“Curiosity made me to return to see if some of the people I left at the vicinity were not killed in the explosion, but when I got there I saw at least seven corpses being evacuated and dozens of injured were been assisted.
“I cannot tell if they are female or male suicide bombers for now, but the youth vigilante members and soldiers were involved in evacuating the corpses.”
