Not less than 28 people lost their lives in terror attacks on Monday. Twenty five of them were killed in the New Road, Sabon Gari park where people traveling to the Southern part of Nigeria usually board luxury buses. Five explosions boomed from devices believed to have been detonated by members of the Boko Haram sect after a suicide bomber rammed a bomb-laden Volkjswagen Golf into a loaded luxury bus. The buses which suffered the greatest impact of the explosion went up in flames immediately while several others around it also caught fire. The Boko Haram sect had unleashed terror on the state in recent months, detonating bombs and perpetrating several forms of killings. The Monday blasts also left several others injured. The area was cordoned off by police investigators after the explosions. Magaji Majiya, the police spokesman of the Kano State Police Command confirmed the incident but could not confirm the casualty figure as of the time of filing this report. Witnesses however counted as many as 25 bodies.
Earlier in the day, three teachers were shot dead in two separate shooting incidents in Maiduguri. Suspected terrorists laid in wait near two schools in the Borno State capital. On sighting one of the female teachers in Al Alaskiri Secondary School in Mafoni ward, the gunmen opened fire, killing the teacher instantly while some students were injured by stray bullets. Two other teachers were gunned down in Mafoni Day Secondary School, another school in the vicinity.
