The police in Borno State have confirmed the death of six persons in multiple explosions in the state capital, Maiduguri.

The police said four of the victims were Boko Haram suicide bombers while two were members of the Civilian-JTF.

Hours after two suicide bombers detonated their explosives killing themselves at a security check post near a federal high court complex in Jiddari Polo, a suburb of Maiduguri, two more explosions were heard echoing from the eastern flank of the city.

The Borno State Commissioner of Police, Damian Chukwu, confirmed to that a suicide bomber tried to enter Muna Garage, a usually crowded bus station, but later detonated the explosive at the gate, killing himself.

The third blast took place a few meters away, near the city’s entrance, where security personnel mounted a check post.
