Again, Multiple Blasts In Biu, At least 8 Dead As CJTF Rescuers Are Bombed


Once again in days in succession, Boko Haram terrorists have detonated bombs in crowded areas in Biu, Borno state killing an additional 8 people.


Three loud explosions rocked military check points in Biu town, Borno State killing many, a Civilian JTF said. Early reports suspect the bombs were detonated by Boko Haram militants.

The first explosions happened at Yamarkumi along Maiduguri road at about 10pm, and two others followed after 10 minutes with an unknown number of casualties, according to the same Civilian-JTF source in Biu.

“It has killed many people because when Civilian JTF were trying to rescue people whom were injured another blast occurred. So I can’t tell you the casualty figures. There is confusion everywhere now. I saw ambulances bring people to Biu General Hospital in Biu town.” Muhammad Isa said.

Biu is about 185 kilometers away from Maiduguri.
