Explosion

There was tension on Saturday morning in Maiduguri, Borno State, after massive explosion rocked a 1000 Housing Estate.

It was gathered that the explosion may have be triggered by fighters of the now-depleted Boko Haram terrorists group.

This online media reports that a rocket launcher also landed at Gomari Airport, a community about four kilometres from the airport located in Maiduguri.

According to a video, some residents were seen discussing the incident in groups, while a large crowd were also spotted in one of the houses affected by the explosion.

The insurgents were said to have also engaged troops in a gun battle.
