A male suicide bomber targeting a major motorpark in Maiduguri, Borno State has killed himself and a passerby.
The bomber was said to be attempting to enter the Muna Garage Motorpark at about 9.30pm Wednesday night, but was intercepted. “He blew off himself and killed one person nearby,” a Civilian JTF commander, who preferred anonymity, told Daily Sun.
The police command’s spokesman, Victor Isuku, a Deputy Superintendent, confirmed the incident in a statement to newsmen. “An explosion occurred at Muna Garage along Gamboru-Ngala Road, Maiduguri. Two persons including the suicide bomber died on the spot,” he said.
Isuku said a Mercedes Benz car parked by the roadside near the scene of the blast was damaged.
The explosion occurred nearly a week when multiple explosions linked to Boko Haram hit the city, killing six people.
