NIGERIAN ARMY SETS UP PANEL TO PROBE DEADLY MAIDUGURI BOKO HARAM ATTACK

The Nigerian Army has set up a four-man panel to investigate last Sunday’s attack by Boko Haram fighters in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, which led to the killing of 28 persons and injuring of 83 others.

Head of the military operations in the North East, Major General Nicholas Rogers, who disclosed this yesterday in Maiduguri, said the investigation became expedient, given the large civilian casualties recorded in the attack.

He said that at least 28 people died and about 80 others were injured as a result of attacks by Boko Haram on two suburbs of Maiduguri.

He also said over 10 suicide bombers, accompanied by gunmen, attempted to infiltrate Maiduguri but were stopped on the outskirts of the city.
