Nigeria Police says four suicide bombers have detonated in the Borno state capital and killed 14 people while wounding another 29.
The deafening blasts could be heard Wednesday evening in Maiduguri, the home of the Boko Haram extremist insurgency. This was one of the largest such attacks in the city in years.
While Nigeria’s military has made progress in combating Boko Haram’s deadly insurgency, the group continues to carry out suicide attacks in Maiduguri and elsewhere. The group often uses female or child bombers, some who had been abducted.
