A bomb blast has hit Kasuwan Shanu area of Borno State, northeast Nigeria, a report from the area said.

The report, by Channels Television, said a suicide bomber detonated an Improvised Explosive Devise (IED) in the area.

“The blast was confirmed on Monday by the spokesman for the Borno State Police Command, DSP Victor Isuku,” the report said.

There were no immediate details about casualties.

News Express reports that the attack came barely a day after President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday announced the fall of the Sambisa Forest stronghold of Boko Haram and the defeat of the terrorist group that has waged a war against the Nigerian State in the past seven years, with Borno State as its operational headquarters.
