At least 12 people were feared killed on Wednesday as two suicide bombers attacked Muna Garage in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

The Civilian JTF operating in the area confirmed the incident, saying nearly 60 persons were injured during the attack.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Damian Chukwu, who was at the scene, also confirmed the death of 12 persons, including the two male bombers who carried out the attack.

Officials of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and that of the Red Cross Society were at the scene.

According to a statement issued by the information officer of NEMA, North East Zone, Mr Abdulkadir Ibrahim, the injured victims were given first aid treatment and transported to the hospitals.

Muna Garage, of recent, has become a soft target for Boko Haram terrorists who seemingly attack the market on an average of once a month with ease and increasing devastating effect.
