UNIMAID: Danger averted after suicide bomber was gunned down

Barely a month after a mosque situated within the premises of the University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID) was attacked by insurgents, danger was averted in the troubled school after a suicide bomber was gunned down within the premises.

Reports say troops stationed at the school, gunned down a Boko Haram suicide bomber who tried to gain entry into the University of Maiduguri through the works department.

The incident was confirmed by the public relations officer of the school, Mr Tanko Ahmed.

He said the suicide bomber had already entered the University through the back gate around 11 pm Sunday night before he was shot by a vigilant soldier.

Ahmed noted that the department where the incident occurred has been cordoned off by security agents to render the area safe and forestall security breaches.

“The area have been cordoned off by security agents,” the public relations officer of the school said.
