The University of Maiduguri yesterday night came under a series of attacks as suicide bombers detonated their explosives at different locations including the security office where two lives were reportedly lost.
The Borno Police Public Relations Officer, Victor Isukwu, had, at about 12 midnight, confirmed the incident on a WhatsApp platform managed by his office, but only gave sketchy details of casualties recorded.
“Let’s not speculate yet”, he cautioned reporters. At Unimaid only one male suicide bomber died; three university security personnel injured among which one later died.”
Danjuma Gambo, a professor in the Mass Communications department of the university who also doubles as the spokesperson of the institution, confirmed in a BBC Hausa broadcast early this morning that three suicide attacks took place in the university last night.
