Multiple bomb attacks kill 18, injure 29 in Borno

A still image taken from a video shows people carrying a dead body after a suicide bomb attack in the northeast Nigerian city of Maiduguri

"A total of 18 persons, including the four suicide bombers, died in the multiple explosions, while 29 others sustained various degrees of injuries", he added.

Bello Danbatta, the spokesperson of the civilian joint task force (CJTF), confirmed the incident.

The first explosion occurred at a praying ground, while the other explosions occurred thereafter, all within the community, Isuku said.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the latest attack, which emergency officials and members of a government-approved vigilante group said was carried out by four female bombers in the Muna Garage district of Maiduguri at about 6 pm (5 pm GMT).

According to the statement, police patrol and bomb disposal teams promptly mobilised to the scene to sanitise and render the area safe.

The Sunni fundamentalist terrorist group Boko Haram was thought to be behind the attack. "Normalcy has been restored to the community".

The extremist group has defied the government's claim made late past year that Boko Haram had been "crushed" after being flushed out of its strongholds.

At least 20,000 people have been killed and more than 2.6 million people made homeless in northeast Nigeria since the group launched its insurgency.

Nigeria's military has stepped up its operations against the group, but counter attacks are also on the rise in the northeast.

The insurgents continue to threaten parts of vast northern Nigeria and neighboring countries.
