More photos from scene of bomb blast at Muna Garage, Maiduguri this Morning


Many traders and travellers were feared killed today 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.
