Another suicide bomb attack at University of Maiduguri

University of Maiduguri

Barely 48 hours after three suicide bombers attacked the University of Maiduguri, another bomber on Saturday detonated his explosive outside the perimeter fencing of the school.

The Borno State police commissioner, Damian Chukwu, said the incident happened at about 10 a.m.

He said the bomber hid near the the university’s Children Secondary School, and detonated the bomb, killing himself, when he sighted a security man coming in his direction.

There was no other casualty in the incident, he said.

The incident, the third in less than two weeks, has however heightened tension in the campus, as students and staffers alike expressed worries over the frequent attacks there.

The university lies on the outskirts of Maiduguri, on the route to Bama.

Aside from the brick perimeter fence on the front side of the university, there is no major barrier at the back of the University, which seems to allow insurgents easy access into the campus.

Last week, one of the five Boko Haram commanders swapped for the 82 abducted Chibok School girls appeared in a video threatening to inundate the country with more bomb attacks.

The military dismissed the video as “cheap propaganda”.

    Boko Haram people and other devout Muslims do not want western education, everywhere they go they preach that schools be closed for good. So UniMaiduguri is subject to attack all the time until it is destroyed or closed down. Nobody should be surprised at what is going on there for Islamists will not rest until all schools are closed down at least were true Muslims reign supreme.

    When religious war is started on this platform, premiumtimes credibility will be tarnished. I think, not all comments should be allowed to see the light of the day. Since some elements have no thinking ability before publishing their comments, there should be a check on inciting comments.

    Who told you that PT does not heavily censor comments? Only a trickle of comments addressing Buhari’s bigotry and incompetence are allowed to get through. Most comments you read here are from Yoruba ass-lickers, sycophants and pretentious men. If a tout like Kay soyemi was writing his insults about Buhari’s injustice do you think PT would publish his garbage?
