 Many people feared dead as bombs explode at Maiduguri Bus Station 
A bomb explosion has rocked
a crowded motor park in
Maiduguri, the Borno state
capital, residents and
security operatives have told
The incident occurred at a
busy location where tricycles
pick passengers, and may
have killed dozens and
injured even many more.
The thunderous blast, which
sounded at about 6:30am,
resonated all over Maiduguri,
residents say.
Witnesses later said the
explosion occurred near the
entrance of Gamboru Market
where operatives of
commercial tricycles park to
pick passengers.
“We heard the blast at about
6:30am this morning and
shortly afterwards, we saw
people running from the
direction of the market
screaming that it was a
bomb,’ said Maryam Abu, a
civil servant whose residence
is close to the area.
No one has so far claimed
responsibility for the
bombing. But security
operatives believe it has the
imprint of the extremist Boko
Haram sect.
