Multiple explosions suspected to be from Boko Haram insurgents shook Maiduguri, Borno State, on Thursday.

The blasts, about three in number, were heard at about 6:30pm, with many residents of the city feared to have been killed in the process.

It was gathered that the explosion occurred at Gunge, a residential area, Mairi and Custom within the metropolis.
