Blast kills more than 18 in Maiduguri

A blast has ripped through a convoy of vehicles in the outskirt of Maiduguri killing at least 18.

 The explosion went off this morning at Muna garage, which is not passable without a military escort, on the way to Gamboru Ngala.

Trucks and vehicles conveying goods and passengers towards the area normally go in a convoy escorted by military men.

An eye witness said he saw 10 corpses at the scene of the explosion, but a source in Maiduguri Specialist Hospital told Daily Trust that at least 18 bodies have been deposited in the hospital morgue with more being expected.
