Multiple Bomb blasts rock Maiduguri Nigeria, 8 feared killed
« on: October 05, 2015, 02:07:30 AM »

Multiple explosions were heard Sunday, on the outskirts of Maiduguri, a city in northeastern Nigeria that has repeatedly been attacked by Boko Haram Islamists, locals said.

AFP reports that loud explosions were heard from the areas of Kayamla and Dalori, three days after Maiduguri was attacked by the insurgents, leaving 10 dead and many more injured.

?The sound of bomb explosions is being heard from Kayamla and Dalori along Bama Road since around 7:00 am today,? said Kursi Yusuf, an employee at the nearby University of Maiduguri.

?We are not sure whether the terrorists are planning to invade the town but the sound vibrating is devastating,? he said.

Khadija Mustapha, a resident of Dalori Quarters, 11 kilometres from Maiduguri, said she had fled her home with her three daughters for fear of being caught in the explosions.

?I don?t know what will happen. The sound of the explosives is really disturbing,? she said, adding that ?many of us have vacated our homes.?
