Four terrorists believed to be suicide bombers, apparently heading for an NNPC facility along Maiduguri-Damboa road, have died in their IED laden vehicles. This latest news comes from sources inside the Nigerian military.

The explosions took place at Mule, on the outskirts of Maiduguri. Three of the four explosive laden vehicles were demobilized by shots fired at them by soldiers at the checkpoint shortly before the explosions that rocked the area, according to a release issued out of the Nigerian Defense Headquarters, from the office of Chris Olukolade.

Five soldiers were wounded while the civilian casualties are yet to be determined.
