Boko Haram suicide bombers earlier today launched attack in Borno killing one person  and wounding many.

Among the wounded were two Soldiers and two members of the Civilian JTF.

The Borno State Police Command  has confirmed the incident, explaining that the wounded had been rushed to hospital for treatment.

The spokesman for the Borno state Command of the Nigeria Police, DSP Edet Okon, in a statement said a male suicide bomber had detonated an Improvised explosive device (IED), strapped to his body in a shop along Baga Road in Maiduguri Metropolis, also killing himself in the process.

According to Okon, those injured included two soldiers and two civilian JTF members.

The police, however, said men of the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) unit, were immediately deployed to sanitize the scene and render the area safe.

Also according to the police, the wounded were rushed to the hospital where they are reportedly responding to treatment.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Damian Chukwu has, therefore, urged members of the public to be vigilant and to promptly report suspicious persons to the security agencies.
