Metro Scores Dead as Boko Haram Tries to Infiltrate Maiduguri

Metro Scores Dead as Boko Haram Tries to Infiltrate Maiduguri

The major damage happened at Muna Garage, a truck station where 13 stationary trucks were burnt after a bomber attacked.

Confirming the Muna Garage attack, the spokesman for the Borno command, Victor Isukwu, a deputy superintendent of police, said only the suicide bombers died in the attack. Nine bombers and two civilians were killed, according to witnesses, soldiers and police.

"He detonated an Improvised Explosive Devise (IED) strapped on his body", Isuku said. The resulting explosion razed down the parked vehicles beyond recognition.

However, in the past year, the military has succeeded in beating back the Islamist militant sect and significantly reduced the amount of suicide attacks on innocent civilians in the northeast.

One witness, Ibrahim Ali, told Anadolu Agency: "We just heard the sound simultaneously from three points".

The Nigerian Army on Thursday evening foiled a Boko Haram attack that targeted Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State in the country's north-east.

"But most of the trucks that were loaded with goods for export to Chad and the border communities were destroyed and commodities worth millions of naira may have been destroyed", said Mr. Ibrahim.

Some Boko Haram gunmen who were riding on motorcycles accompanied the six suicide bombers, they said.

The security agencies are yet to issue a statement.

"Our helicopter conveying personnel on medical outreach programme at Gwoza came under attack by members of the Boko Haram terrorists group".

A multinational force of troops from Nigeria and its neighbors previous year drove Boko Haram out of occupied towns and villages in northeast Nigeria but isolated attacks and suicide bombings continue.
