Four terrorists believed to be suicide bombers, apparently heading for an NNPC facility along Maiduguri-Damboa road have died in their IED laden vehicles.
Major General, Chris Olukolade in a statement noted that the explosions took place at Mule in the outskirt of Maiduguri.
It says three of the four explosive laden vehicles were demobilized by shots fired at them by soldiers at the check point shortly before the explosions that rocked the area.
Five soldiers were wounded while the civilian casualties are yet to be determined.
More details follow later.
