Suicide bombers in four Volkswagen golf cars rammed into two military trucks on Damboa road 10km from Maiduguri. At this time, casualty figures are unknown.
Maiduguri has been the site of attacks on the Giwa Barracks led by the Boko Haram Islamic sect in recent weeks.
Nigerian military officials re-took the Giwa Barracks in a tense fire-fight in recent days, capturing and killing several members of the sect. It is unclear what this recent unprovoked attack is linked to. We will provide additional updates as we receive them.
