Three male suicide-bombers were killed while attempting to attack a female hostel in the University of Maiduguri last night.
Reports say two bombs exploded before the bombers reach their targets, making them the only victims of the attack.
It was gathered that one of the three suicide-bombers carried AK 47 gun.
A student leader in the university, Comrade Abu Hanifa Babati confirmed that one of the explosions occurred around BOT Hostel, which is a female hostel.
He said another explosion occurred around the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the university.
An emergency worker involved in the evacuation said that:”Four security men in the university, including volunteers were treated with injuries they sustained as no life was lost except the killed suicide bombers.
Meanwhile the corpses of the bombers have been evacuated by workers from NEMA and BOSEMA.”
There have been a spate of bomb explosions recently in the Borno state capital lately and the university has been one of the spots for the rising attacks.
