The Police Command in Borno in the morning of Thursday, November 24, 2016 confirmed the killing of two persons after a suicide bombing around Muna garage in Maiduguri.

Victor Isuku, the spokesman of the command, stated this in a statement in Maiduguri.

“About 21.06hours of Wednesday, an explosion occurred at Muna garage along Gamboru Ngala road Maiduguri.

“Two persons, including the suicide bomber, died on the spot while a Mercedes Benz car with registration number, AX 571 ABJ, parked by the road side was damaged by the impact of the explosion,” Isuku said.

He said that normalcy had returned to the area.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalled that last Friday, a suspected suicide bomber detonated explosives at the entrance of Muna garage, killing himself alone.

Another bomber killed himself and two vigilantes a few metres away from Gamboru-Ngala road, almost the same time while another bomber was killed before gaining entry into the Custom House refugee camp, the same Friday.

The 81 division of the Nigerian Army has said it arrested 37 suspected Boko Haram insurgents in Lagos and Ogun states within the last 15 months.

Isidore Edet, former general officer commanding (GOC) of the division, disclosed this in Lagos in November while handing over to Ebenezer Oyefolu, his successor. (NAN)
