Explosions Rock Maiduguri as APC Governors Meet

News » Politics

Spokesman of the Joint Task Force (JTF) Lieutenant Colonel Sagir Musa said he could not confirm if there were any casualties, although reports claim that some soldiers may have been killed.

The explosions occurred simultaneously on Baga road, Customs and Gamboru areas at about 3pm, while a fourth exploded at London Ciki at about 6pm.

The Commissioner of Police, Mr Yuguda Abdullahi, however, claimed knowledge of only one blast, saying he personally visited that site. He declined comment on the number of casualties.

This comes as nine governors in the All Progressive Congress, APC, gathered in Maiduguri to push the merger plans of the country’s leading opposition political parties.

The governors in a communiqué vowed that they would rescue Nigeria from what they described as visionless leadership.

The governors jointly donated N200 million to Borno and Yobe states, the two opposition party held states that are at the centre of the Boko haram insurgency.
