Nigerian Army Foils Suicide Bombing Attempt At University Of Maiduguri

A Suicide Bombing attack by Boko Haram terrorists on the University of Maiduguri, Borno state was foiled by members of the Nigerian Army special forces on Sunday Night.
In a statement on Monday in Abuja, the Nigerian Air Force’s Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Vice Marshal Olatokunbo Adesanya said;

“The BHT suicide bombers tried to gain access into the University but were quickly detected by the NAF Special Forces. Meanwhile, the vest on one of the suicide bombers detonated before they could gain access to the hostel, leading to a commotion.”

“However, there was no reported fatality except for the suicide bomber, whose counterparts immediately fled, when the NAF Special Forces and the NA troops opened fire on them. The NAF Agusta Light Utility Helicopter (LUH) then went in pursuit of the fleeing BHTs, following which an additional suicide bomber was identified and neutralized. Members of the populace, especially around the University premises are, therefore, requested to be very vigilant,”

The AVM added that the NAF Agusta LUH was still searching for the other fleeing terrorists.
