At least four people died and eight others were injured when two terrorists attacked Maiduguri on Wednesday. The attack occurred near Muna Garage in the Borno State capital when a bomber detonated an improvised explosive device attached to his body, killing himself and two nearby civilians. At least eight others were wounded by the blast.
The second terrorist stole a soldier’s rifle before he was shot dead by an officer when he was about opening up fire.
“As State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) staff arrived at the scene to rescue the wounded civilians, another boy grabbed a soldier and snatched his AK-47 rifle. “But luckily enough, he could not open fire. As he approached another officer, he was shot dead.”
A civilian was shot in the crossfire and has since been taken to the State Specialist Hospital by SEMA and Red Cross staff alongside other wounded victims Mr. Kachalla said.
