“The command’s EOD teams were dispatched to sanitize the scene and vicinity of the campus for general safety. While normalcy has since been restored”. Isuku stated.

The suicide attacks by suspected members of the Boko Haram have occurred despite the terror group losing most of the territory it once controlled to the Nigerian military.

The group recently released 82 Chibok girls from captivity, over three years after they were kidnapped from their secondary school in Chibok, Borno State. The girls were released as part of a prisoner swap that also saw the government release an undisclosed number of Boko Haram suspects.
