KABUL: (Middle East Press) Two bomb blasts killed at least seven people and wounded more than 17 others in the northeastern city of Maiduguri in Nigeria’s restive Borno state, said Borno state police commissioner, Clement Adoda.
The incidents took place after the two explosions hit a busy market and a nearby commercial street.
Adoda told reporters on Tuesday that the rescue is still going on.
He referred to only one blast after initial reports of two explosions at the city’s Monday Market and in a nearby street.
Bukar Ali, one of the witnesses, also said “nobody is allowed close to the scenes of the blast.”
No individual has so far claimed responsibility for the deadly explosions, but they bear the hallmarks of the attacks by Boko Haram Takfiri militant group.
