Three Bombs Detonated In Maiduguri Despite State Of Emergency Declaration

Three bomb blasts have hit the northern Nigerian cities of Maiduguri and Damaturu while two civilians were shot dead in separate incidents, the military and residents say.

The attacks were the first incidents in the area since it was placed under a state of emergency last weekend by President Goodluck Jonathan in the wake of a heightened offensive by Islamist sect Boko Haram.

"There were two explosions in the Mairi area... this evening. The explosives were planted in a ditch and detonated when nobody was around," Lieutenant Colonel Hassan Mohammed, spokesman for a special military taskforce in Maiduguri, said.
