Tragedy struck the camps of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Maiduguri, Borno State as twin explosions went off on Saturday, March 14, 2015.
The bombs went off at about 6:15pm. The impact of the explosions could be felt around Maduganari ward, Ramat Polytechnic institute and other nearby communities.
Just last Saturday, multiple explosions rocked different locations including two major markets and motor parks in the metropolis living over 100 people dead with scores injured.
Unconfirmed revelation from sources said the incident took place at Yerwa Government Girls Secondary School, while other sources said, the incident occurred at Arabic Teacher’s College, unfortunately both schools which share the same fence have now became camps accommodating some IDPs in Borno.
Another source revealed that “the explosions were safely detonated by security operatives at Yewa Secondary School located at the heart of the city after discovering that it was planted by insurgents to cause havoc in the camps.”
