Soldiers on duty around the University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID) have gunned down a suicide bomber, averting what would have been a tragic suicide attack.

The suicide bomber, strapped with an Improvised Explosive Device (IED), made his entrance through the University Printing Press but was sighted and taken out by the soldiers leading to the explosion of the strapped device.

Only the suicide bomber died from the incident.

The university has been the target of suicide attacks since January last year.

After initial attempts to attack the institution, the state government built trenches around the school; and the federal government recently approved a perimeter fencing to further fortify the school. (Channels TV)
