Twin bomb blast rocked the gate 1 and 5 of the University of Maiduguri campus early this morning, Monday January 16th 2017. The deadly incident, according to Alutanews reporter, occurred at about 3.30am, inside the north eastern varsity’s mosque, as Muslim faithfuls gathered for morning prayers.
According to a lecturer of the school, who pleaded anonymity, “I thank God, I just narrowly escaped death. this happened as I just left the mosque”. But he said a number of his colleagues including a popular Prof. Mani were either killed or seriously injured in the blast. Our reporter managed to secure few graphic photos of shattered human parts. Find them below. This is the first major attack on the institution since the insurgency began, and the Boko Haram insurgents are believed to be behind this attack.
