Another bomb goes off in Maiduguri, dozens feared killed

Barely an hour after an explosion killed many at a Maiduguri fish market, another bomb has gone off at a crowded commercial centre, killing dozens more.

A witness called to inform PREMIU‎M TIMES that the blast went off at the popular commercial area called Post Office.

Details on the second bomb is still sketchy.

Earlier, at least 10 persons were feared killed in a bomb explosion from a suicide bomber riding in a Keke Napep in Maiduguri.

The explosion, which occurred at a crowded commercial area in Maiduguri,  went off about an hour ago. 

Witnesses said many people  were affected. 

The suicide bomber tried to enter Baga fish market motor park, residents said.

A top security officer, who requested not to be named because he is not authorised to speak to the media, confirmed this to PREMIUM TIMES. 

“About ten persons were confirmed killed so far but the blast was massive”, said the security officer. “We are still taking count of casualties.”

The police in Maiduguri could not be reached at this time to comment for this story.
