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.
Although a resident said no life was lost, a military source told the publication that troops of 33 artillery, Njimtelo, opened fire when they sighted insurgents on the outskirts of Maiduguri.
The insurgents were said to have also engaged troops in a gun battle.
