Ola ‘Kiya, Reporting

No fewer than 25 people have been feared killed and several injured amid crushed buildings as suspected Boko Haram fighters hit Maiduguri, capital of Borno State, ahead of the visit of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The insurgents, it was gathered, attacked three communities on Thursday at Ngomari Airport General area in Maiduguri.

The attackers appeared to have targetted the airport as they struck 10:45a.m, a few minutes before the arrival of Buhari, Daily Trust reports.

Some locals reportedly said that the attackers hit the communities with rocket launchers, killing unconfirmed number of people and destroying residential area and properties.

A resident said one of the rockets landed close to an office and two landed in Ngomari Ayashe community, killing four children, one in Moranti.

“I can confirm that a 16-year-old child, Walida, was affected in the attack. She died instantly; she was cooking when her head got destroyed by the rocket,” the resident told Daily Trust.

There’s been no confirmation from authorities on the attack.
