Report reaching NEWISSUES has it that there was an explosion in Muna garage, Maiduguri, around 9am Wednesday morning with casualties numbering about twenty. NEWISSUES correspondent in Maiduguri, Jack Vincent, confirmed this story. He said many of the casualties were traders and travelers.
Just two weeks ago, Abubakar Shekau, the leader of Boko Haram appeared on a new video threatening mayhem. NEWISSUES gathered that government officials always downplay information on terror threats and try to hide information on this matter.
Just to show Boko Haram have no power, the governor of Borno State moved the government house to Bama for about two weeks to encourage internally displaced people to move back but after this bomb blast, which president Buhari had reiterated that Boko Haram has been reduced to such soft target, a lot of people would not feel too safe.
Despite talks that Boko Haram has been defeated, the military spokesperson almost always report clashes between Boko Haram and the army.
