Suspected Boko Haram terrorists have struck in the Muna area of Maiduguri, Borno State, around 2:50pm today.
This attack came few hours after President Muhammadu Buhari presided over a security meeting where he ordered service chiefs to tackle security threats in the North-east and other parts of the country.
