Three suicide bombers were killed in the early hours of Saturday when they attempted to infiltrate the Department of Works of the University of Maiduguri in Borno State.
The incident occurred at about 1.10 am early Saturday.
A security guard at the University was also killed from the explosions which occurred at about 1:10 a.m.
The corpses have been evacuated by rescuers from the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, and Borno State Emergency Management Agency, BOSEMA.
Saturday’s attack is the latest in the series of attacks by suicide bombers on Borno communities. It also marks at least the third on the Maiduguri University in 2017 with a professor among the victims of earlier attacks.
