The Borno Police Command has confirmed multiple blasts ignited by suspected female suicide bombers around NNPC depot on Damboa Road, Maiduguri.
The spokesman of the command, Mr. Victor Isuku, made the confirmation in an interview in Maiduguri.
According to him, men of the police force are still working at the scene of the blasts, pledging to give details later.
An eyewitness, Malam Abubakar Kaumi, told newsmen at the scene that the blast occurred around 3 a.m.
He says a woman suspected to be a suicide bomber walking alongside two girls came round the depot, detonated their explosives near some petrol tankers parked there, and destroyed the three vehicles.
Kaumi said nobody was closed by, so, only the three bombers died in the attack.
