Scores were feared dead as bomb explosions hit Maiduguri, Borno State Monday morning.
It was learnt that the first incident occurred at the mosque of the University of Maiduguri during the fajir prayer at about 6.30am.
Police Commissioner, Damian Chukwu has mobilised bomb squad to the scene of the early morning suicide bomb attacks.
It was gathered that a Professor and two others were killed in the blast, while thirteen others were said to have been rushed to the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital.
“This is the first time they succeeded in causing serious damage on the University and I believe, this is due to laxity on the part of the security in the University”, one of the lecturers at the University said.
He said five people, including another lecturer, who were said to have been rushed to the University of Maiduguri Teaching hospital this morning are in critical condition.
The first suicide bomb attack occurred at the gate one mosque, while another went off at the entrance to gate five while Muslim faithful were going for the early morning prayers.
It was learnt that rumour of bomb attack has been going on for a long time, prompting the mobilization of security at gate one and two of the University.
Several times, the Boko Haram terrorists have made attempts to attack the University, but the military repelled them.
