A bomb has gone off in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, leaving an unspecified number of people dead.

The incident happened around 8pm at the airport round-about in the Gomari area of the city, according to an eye witness.

“The incident happened around 8pm and many people are believed to have been killed because there were series of bomb explosions,” he said.

When contacted by Cable News, Gideon Jibrin, who was until recently the police public relations officer in the state, said he had no information.

“Unfortunately, I have left the state and I don’t have any information on that but I will keep you posted if I have any information,” he said.

However, no one has claimed responsibility, but the dreaded Islamic sect, Boko Haram is suspected.
