Five people -- including three suspected Boko Haram suicide bombers -- are dead after attacks hit Nigeria’s troubled Maiduguri city on Friday.
Witnesses said three suicide bombers blew themselves up at Muna Garage, a transport hub in the northeastern city, in the early hours of Friday, killing two bystanders and injuring six people.
One eyewitness, Ibrahim Ali, told Anadolu Agency: "We just heard the sound simultaneously from three points. The three bombers were torn apart by the explosions while two other persons died.
“Six people including the security volunteers [Civilian JTF] were injured.”
Six suicide bombers were also intercepted at a security point a few meters from the scene of the first blasts.
"It occurred at about 2.20 a.m. [0120GMT]," a security volunteer, Saleh Mohammad said.
Neither the police nor the military have issued any official confirmation on the incident.
