The bomb explosion that killed at least 5 people near the crowded Thursday evening in the city of Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State on July 30, 2020, was just the latest of dozens of attacks that have battered northern Nigeria.
Triple explosions went off in the Custom Area of the state, which is densely populated according to Mohammed Ndatsu, the commissioner of police in the state.
Aside confirming the attack, Ndatsu also said a related statement about the casualty figure during an interview with Channels Television some hours after the incident.
On explaining the type of explosion that was launched in the town, he said only a bomb specialist could explain that.
He went ahead to accuse the terrorist group in the North East of Nigeria to have carried out the attack.
It was learnt that the first explosive attack landed at a shop in the commercial area, killing a furniture maker and his son.
This was followed with a second tragic one said to have landed on a house at Gwange area, killing a child and a goat.
The third and last blast went on two individuals which got them killed and making the human victims of the attacks five.
It was so unfortunate that the attack happened hours after Borno State governor and his convoy were attacked by Boko Haram terrorists.
The lifeless Bodies of the victims were taken away by the officials of Borno State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) from the scenes of the blasts.
