Maiduguri - Blasts detonated by three suicide bombers in Maiduguri killed at least seven people on Tuesday, the Red Cross and a vigilante group member said.
Explosive devices were detonated at Sajeri, a community on the outskirts of the city centre, around 8:30 p.m. local time, said Ba'ana Musa, a member of a youth vigilante group that helped to evacuate people.
