Series of Explosions Occur

Aug 1, 2020

Overnight on 30-31 July 2020, a series of explosions occurred in Nigeria’s northeastern city of Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, which is located approximately 850 km (530 mi) from the capital Abuja. The head of security for Borno state’s Emergency Management Agency stated that four rocket-propelled grenades were fired from outside the city and landed on separate sites. Eyewitness reports note that the explosions occurred in a busy part of the city with traders and residents commuting home. At least three people were killed and six others were wounded in the attack. The Boko Haram Islamist militant group is the likeliest perpetrator, although no group has claimed responsibility for the attack as yet.
