Fatal blast hits northeast Nigeria village near Maiduguri

Dec 28, 2015 | Africa, NEWS | 0 comments

Militants in Nigeria have attacked a village near the north-eastern city of Maiduguri, killing 21 people and injuring 91 others. Reports say gunmen armed with rocket-propelled grenades fired from three trucks during the raid on Sunday evening. Hours later, a female suicide bomber killed one person as people were lining up at a mosque this morning in the city.  Critics of the Nigerian government argue that it has exaggerated the scale of its success against the militants, and that each time the army claims to have wiped out Boko Haram, the militants have quietly rebuilt.
