van they were driving in exploded
before they could get to Biu Market,
Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

market, which the source said was
their main target.

loaded with maize and beans with
IED hidden under it belonging to
Boko Haram insurgents exploded

thereby kill many people. As you
know, it is harvest period and
people are taking their farm
produce to the market but thank

they could get to the market.”

must have specifically chosen
Monday because they knew that

were trying to carry explosives to
Biu Market but it exploded before
they even got to Biu.”

Biu, told our correspondent on the
telephone on Tuesday that the
insurgents stormed the village on
Monday night and killed scores of
people and burnt some houses and
He said, “We had to flee to the bush
in the night before returning to the
village the following day to pick
our belongings.”
