NIGERIAN AIR FORCE GETS AHEAD OF SUICIDE BOMBING AT UNIVERSITY OF MAIDUGURI

The Nigerian Air Force, in conjunction with some Nigerian Army troops, has successfully foiled a suicide bombing attack by Boko Haram terrorists at the University of Maiduguri, Borno State last night.

The Air Force said in a statement that the Boko Haram suicide bombers, according to a statement by its spokesperson, Air Vice Marshal Olatokunbo Adesanya, tried to gain access into the University but were quickly detected by Special Forces of the Nigerian Air Force.

The vest on one of the suicide bombers was said to have been detonated before they could gain access to the hostel, leading to a commotion.

However, there was no reported fatality except for the suicide bomber, whose counterparts immediately fled, when the special forces opened fire on them.
