A Dalori internally displaced persons (IDP) camp, in Maiduguri, Borno State, was on Thursday night attacked by suspected members of the Boko Haram terrorist group.
It was gathered that the suicide bombers who attacked the place at around 9 pm first struck before gunmen opened fire from different directions.
A source told TheCable that displaced persons fled when the gunshots subsided and that security operatives have cordoned off the camp.
The attack by Boko Haram on the IDP camp also caused tension at the University of Maiduguri which was close to the camp.
Naija News reports that Dalori had been attacked by Boko Haram insurgents in the past.
