Military says multiple blast in Maiduguri this morning was from routine test of equipments

The 7th Division of the Nigerian Army in Maiduguri say the explosion that was recorded in Kayamla and Dalori along Bama Road this morning is not a Boko Haram attack but as a result of their routine testing of some military equipment.

Spokesman of the Division, Col Tukur Gusau while speaking to newsmen, disputed claims that the explosions were from Boko haram attacks. He appealed to residents in the state to remain calm. "It is a routine test firing of our weapons to ensure that they are in a state of readiness,'' he said
