At least four persons were murdered while over 17 others were injured when suicide bombers attacked two locations at the University of Maiduguri early this morning.
The terror attack occurred around 5am during the Subhi prayers. The deafening blast woke up students and residents of the University of Maiduguri (UniMaid) campus as they could be seen scampering to safety.
The crazy reason why a dreaded Islamic sect would attack a university can never be justified! This terrorists have once again brought tears to the eyes of Nigerians for no other reason but their misguided religious beliefs and fanatic extremism.
Who and How?
The deadly attack was perpetrated by dare-devil Boko Haram terrorists with the aid of two brainwashed suicide bombers. One of the bombers was reported to be as young as 7-year-old.
