The University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID) was thrown into mourning on Sunday night after suicide bombers attacked its campus, reportedly killing two.

The coordinated attacks took place in different parts of the campus, including the institution's security office.

According to Premium Times, there were two blasts that were followed by hours of shooting.

The first attack happened around 10:15pm before the second one around 11pm.

One of the dead victims is said to have been a female security officer.

Danjuma Gambo, a professor of Mass Communications at the institution confirmed the attack early on Monday, saying three suicide attacks took place.

However, Victor Isukwu, the Borno police public relations officer, while confirming the incident, called for caution about the details.

He said, "Let’s not speculate yet. At Unimaid only one male suicide bomber died; three university security personnel injured among which one later died."

The university has been the target of several Boko Haram attacks since its first attack on the school's grounds on January 16.
