Just as the residents of Damaturu are still trying to come to terms with the suicide bombings that claimed the lives of six people and injured over 40 on Tuesday, another suicide bombing has been reported in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

A soldier is reported to have been killed in the blast which occurred at the airport junction checkpoint, injuring one other person last night.

It was gathered that the supposed suicide bomber and his accomplice were blown up in the attack.

The injured person is said to be a female passerby.

Army spokesperson of the 7Division in Maiduguri, Colonel Tukur Gusau, confirmed the incident.

Civilian Joint Task Force operatives have cleared the debris of the suicide bombers and normal activities have returned to the area and other parts of the capital city.

Suicide bombing was last experienced in Maiduguri on the 31st of last month in a vegetable market, killing six people
