Boko-Haram-1

Suspected Boko Haram fighters have attacked Dalori internally displaced persons (IDP) camp in Maiduguri, capital of Borno state.

The attack took place Thursday night, a witness told the TheCable.

The witness said suicide bombers first struck before gunmen opened fire from different directions.

The IDPs fled when the gunshots subsided and that security operatives have cordoned off the camp, he added.

It is understood that most of the IDPs in the camp are from Bama local government area of the state.

Dalori camp had been attacked by insurgents in the past.

The incident reportedly caused tension at the University of Maiduguri which is a few kilometers from the scene of the attack.

Parents were said to have rushed to the school to pick their children as students fled the institution.
