Many traders and travellers were feared killed on Wednesday as an improvised explosive suspected to have been planted by Boko Haram insurgents went off outside a car park in Maiduguri, Borno state.
The explosion went off at a park popularly called Mun Garage at about 9a.m. in the capital city of the north-east Nigerian state.
A witness who said he was lucky to survive the incident said he saw about a dozen bodies covered with blood littering the scene.
“I thank God for sparing my life,,” said Usman Kachalla, a local trader. “I don’t know if it is a suicide bomber, we just heard the blast and I saw my self covered with dust.”
An official of the Civilian-JTF, Alhaji Khalil, confirmed the incident to PREMIUM TIMES.
“Yes there was a blast early this morning outside Muna Garage along Mafa road. We have sent our operatives down there; but we have not confirmed the casualty,” said the Civilian-JTF official.
