Sound of explosions and gunshots were heard this evening around Fori area of Maiduguri, Borno state forcing residents to scamper to safety, particularly people living around Giwa Barrack.
There was no confirmation yet as to what caused the blasts. Some residents said the explosion and exchange of gunshots was taking place in Bale, a ward around the Cashew plantation.
“I heard more than eight explosions and gunshots but nobody knows whether the exchange of gunshots is between security operatives and Boko Haram trying to infiltrate Maiduguri. Let’s keep on praying,” Dauda Imam, a resident of Fori told DAILY POST on phone.
