Just ten days after a bomb exploded at the parking lot of the Headquarters of the Nigerian Police Force in Abuja, killing scores of people, a set of devastating explosions rocked Maiduguri, the Borno State capital on Sunday. The bombs were thrown into three different drinking joints including a popular one in Dala Kabomti by men riding on motorcycles.
The Sunday evening attacks left 25 people dead and at least 12 injured. The Boko Haram sect is believed to be behind the attacks. It will be recalled that not quite two weeks ago, a drinking joint was attacked in Maiduguri and with the latest set of explosions, the sect seems to have found new targets in beer parlours.
