Boko Haram terror group have attacked a market inside 33 Army Artillery barracks on the outskirts of Maiduguri, capital of Borno state, report says.

The incident occurred around 9:30pm.

The source said suicide bombers sneaked into the barracks in a tricycle, and detonated their explosives at a relaxation spot.

“The attackers took advantage of the high influx into the mammy market as a result of the demolition of brothels in the city,” a source said.

“The Borno state government has destroyed brothels in the city centre, people now troop to the barracks which is still full of life. The suicide bombers sneaked in and struck within the crowd,” the Cable reported.

Moruma Zannah, a member of the Civilian joint task force (CJTF), a local vigilante group, told TheCable that many people were killed while those who sustained injuries were evacuated to the Maiduguri Specialist Hospital.

“I cannot ascertain the number of dead people. We all ran for our dear life,” he said. (New Telegraph)
