28 December 2015, 12:38Israel Ojoko

Maiduguri - With only three days to the December 31 deadline set by President Muhammadu Buhari to wipe out Boko Haram, at least 40 people have been killed in bomb blasts in a mosque in Maiduguri, Borno State, North East Nigeria.

Although the figure is yet to be confirmed, the explosives, according to witnesses, were detonated by suspected teenage girls.

The Nigerian army had said on Sunday that normalcy had returned to the city after suicide bombers intended to carry out attacks.

A military statement said troops intercepted the suspects before they could strike the Borno State capital, which has borne the biggest brunt of such attacks by Boko Haram.

“Normalcy has been restored to the general area and the public is please advised to go about their normal businesses and social activities.

“However, it is important to maintain more vigilance and security consciousness,” Colonel Mustapha Anka, Media Co-ordinator of Operation Lafiya Dole, said.

President Buhari said during a BBC interviews that Nigeria had “technically won the war” against Boko Haram.
