Nigeria: Suicide bombers kill 14 in Maiduguri city

MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (AA): At least 14 people were killed and 29 injured Wednesday when four suicide bombers detonated their explosives in Nigeria’s Maiduguri city.

The bombers targeted crowded parts of Muna Gari suburb.

The two female and two male bombers, who are suspected to be members of Boko Haram, killed themselves and 14 others, police spokesman Victor Isuku said.

“A total of 18 people, including the four suicide bombers, died in the multiple explosions,” he said.

The first explosion occurred at a prayer ground, while the other explosions occurred at different locations in the community, he said.

He said the 29 injured in the blasts have been taken to public hospitals in the city.

No group has claimed responsibility, but police blame Boko Haram terrorists for the attacks and previous bombings in the area.

The terrorist group, which is seeking to carve out a territory for itself in northeast Nigeria, has carried out nearly seven years of attacks in the region.
