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.
The Boko Haram group has renewed attacks in recent times, including firing on a military fighter jet on Thursday.
