Borno boosts UNIMAID security with N50m

In less than a year brutal violence in the five central Kasai provinces of the Democratic Republic of Congo has claimed more than 3,000 lives according to a tally by the Roman Catholic church and displaced 1.3 million people

Mr Damian Chukwu the State's Commissioner of Police confirmed the incidents, saying that 16 persons were killed.

Chukwu added: "In all, 16 persons including the suicide bombers died in the multiple explosions while 13 persons were injured".

Isuku, disclosing this information to journalists via the Borno Police Whatsapp page, said "At UNIMAID only one male suicide bomber died".

"At about 2230 hours the same night, four female suicide bombers infiltrated Zannari Community in Gwange general area".

"Our forces attacked Boko Haram elements on five islands near Nigeria on June 24 and 25", said Chad army spokesman Colonel Azem, indicating eight soldiers had died and another 18 were wounded.

"The fourth female suicide bomber, identity not known, was arrested with injuries on her body but she eventually died same night (Sunday) as a result of injuries she sustained". Two of the suicide bombers detonated PBIEDs on their bodies in two residential buildings.

Two other female suicide bombers detonated their bombs right behind the Entrepreneurship Centre and Works Department of the university killing only themselves at about the same 4.08am.


The University of Maiduguri on Sunday night came under a series of attacks as suicide bombers detonated their explosives at different locations including the security office where two lives were reportedly lost.

A number of suicide bomb attacks by suspected members of the jihadist group have taken place in the capital of Borno state.

Chukwu said that the police anti explosion unit had been mobilised to the scenes, while the injured were evacuated to hospital for medical treatment.

The attack has also been confirmed by spokesperson of the institution, Danjuma Gambo.

The University of Maiduguri which is about 45km from Kawuri town where the official entrance gate to Sambisa forest is located, has suffered several attacks from the dreaded Boko Haram sect.

The governor of northeast Nigeria's Borno state Kashim Shettima Monday appealed to the military to intensify efforts to end the Boko Haram insurgency that had ravaged the region for long.
