A suicide bomber has reportedly attacked a residential area in the Jidarri Polo axis of Maiduguri, Borno state capital.

According to The Cable, which quoted a resident identified as Baa-na Shetimma, the attack occurred around 9pm on Friday, April 27, 2018.

"There are dead bodies in front of my house as I speak to you,"  Shetimma was quoted as saying.

He said he heard a loud explosion as he was about opening his car to drive out.

Yesterday's attack

On Thursday, April 26, a combined team of security operatives confronted the insurgents in a fierce gun battle at Jiddari Polo area, same location as the latest attack.

The security team reportedly overpowered the terrorists but a suicide bomber attacked shortly after, leaving two policemen injured.
