Powerful explosions cause panick Maiduguri

Six powerful multiple explosions were heard in Maiduguri, the Bornu State Capital on Tuesday night.

According to a report by the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, the powerful explosions occurred between 10:45 and 11:00 pm.

About four explosives were said to have been detonated simultaneously while two other powerful sounds were also heard some 15 minutes later.

Unlike the previous explosions, the current blast has a wide-range sound effect, sending its powerful sounds to many parts of the metropolis, forcing roofs to shake.

It is not clear where the blast occurred yet and efforts to get the details of the blasts were not successful as none of the official security spokespersons was available for comments.

However, a security source told NAN that soldiers had fired an artillery at a convoy of suspected Boko Haram insurgents who were trying to attack the city which caused series of explosions.
