Three suicide bombers on Friday detonated explosives inside a university campus in Nigeria’s northeastern state.
The incident took place in Maiduguri city of Borno state.
“There were multiple suicide bombings at University Of Maiduguri where three male suicide bombers were killed,” according to a short statement by the country's National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).
Locals told Anadolu Agency that those injured included soldiers, members of the government-backed vigilante group and personnel of the varsity’s security, without mentioning the specific number of people hurt in the incident.
The bombings were the second such attack in a week blamed on the Boko Haram militant group that has waged violent insurgency in the region since 2009.
On Thursday, police said two soldiers were injured in a suicide bomb attack near a refugee camp in Nigeria’s northeastern Konduga town of Borno state.
