Boko Haram: Explosions Near University of Maiduguri Keep Students, Staff Terrified

Is their army and airforce in Maiduguri anymore? I wonder this so called state of emergency that were imposed in Borno. How could this insurgents re-group again? I smell conspiracy with this Boko Haram saga. Definately some top gov’t officials have interest in this war. If i may ask:

1, where are the check points that are put in place.

2. We want to know where are the army diverting the money allocated to them in fighting this insurgency?

3. How are this so called Boko Haram got heavy weapons and expolosives in a region that is said to be poor.

4. Who are those people in HELLICOPTERS sending military uniforms, guns, grenades etc. to this insurgents?

5. Where are those criminals that were arrested and interrogated by SSS?

This are many questions begging for an answer:

There are elements who are vehemently opposed to the President running for a second term in office and will do everything within their power and imagination to scuttle this ambition. I cannot categorically say who these elements are but it is clear from the reaction of the gullible Nigerians that they are slowly but steadily getting the desired result.

God will definitely deliver Nigeria from this dreadful insurgents

Report has it that Thunderous sounds suspected to be from bomb explosions and continuous shooting around the University of Maiduguri scared students and staff on campus all Friday night. Many of the students and staff stayed awake till dawn.

‪The explosion, according to grapevin, started at about 2 a.m.‬

‪Some students said the sounds woke them up, while those that were awake and reading for the ongoing second semester exams said they were terrified.‬

‪A 200-level student of the University, Halima Abdul, told grapevine that “we don’t know from where the explosion and shooting occurred and we could not even run because it is dark and dangerous to do so. It happened around 2 a.m.; I was not asleep then”.‬

‪Halima said the university’s Dean of Students Affairs visited them in the hostel in the early hours of Saturday to assure them of safety, even as he warned of dangers in trying to run from the school.‬

‪A security official who spoke to our grapevine but asked not to be named because it was not his role to speak to the press said the shooting had nothing to do with the university. He said the shooting occurred in two villages about 12km away from university campus.‬

‪”What was heard as blast and the shooting had nothing to do with the University. There was an attack by these insurgents last night at Marimari and Gremari villages in Konduga Local Government Area. The villages were attacked as we gathered because the villagers had recently nabbed and killed some of the Boko Haram members; so they visited for a revenge. Though luckily the villagers were able to escape, but the attackers burnt down the two villages.‬

‪”The shootings being heard in the university was a friendly firing from soldiers in Dalori Quarters which is just some 2km away from the university campus”, said the security source who works with the Department of State Security, SSS.‬

‪At the university, visibly terrified students, especially those that had rounded off their exams, were seen pulling their bags hurriedly out of the campus, while those that still have papers to write were also spotted standing in groups looking terrified.‬

The university has remained largely immune from the attacks by suspected Boko Haram members on Maiduguri and other Borno communities.
