Within the last 10 minutes, there have been at least two bomb explosions inside Maiduguri, state capital of Borno.
A resident told TheCable that the first blast happened around 6 pm at Gunge, a resident place.
The other blast occurred near a location where cars are sold in the state capital, according to one security source.
Reacting to the assault on his convoy, Zulum had said that if the military were unable to secure them, he would mobilize hunters to protect the citizens.
“We have over 1,181 soldiers in Baga; 72 officers, 107 solders, 400 soldiers in mile 4 and 1,900 soldiers in Monguno. I see no reason why Boko Haram will stop operate in Baga town,” he had said.“The troops have been in mile 4 for over one year, there is complete sabotage, the problem is not with President Buhari, or General Burutai but the command and control structures. There is need to look into command structure.“We have over 80,000 IDPs in Monguno, they cannot continue to depend on NGOs and others for food, we have created opportunity for them to go back to their communities and continue with their business and farming activities.“After Sallah, we will go back to Kukawa. We we will give time to the military; but if they will not clear Baga, we will mobilise our hunters and vigilantes to recapture Baga… we can’t continue like this. People have take their destiny in their hands.”
