The attacks, which were unleashed by five people at different locations, resulted in the deaths of at least 8 people and injured 20 people.[1] Among the dead were four suspected bombers and four Nigerian IDPs.[3]

No terrorist group immediately claimed responsibility for the explosions, but terror group Boko Haram may be responsible for the attack as Maiduguri has been attacked by Boko Haram previously.[4]
