President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday visited Maiduguri, the Borno State Capital, where he commissioned various projects.


There were initial doubts that the President would not go ahead with trip,
as three explosions rocked the city just a few hours before the his arrival.


But the President caried on with his schedule as planned, which began
with the commissioning of an edifice at the University of Maiduguri.


Afterward, he proceeded to commission some projects executed by the
Borno State Government including a 10km dual carriageway, a flyover,
and a mega secondary school.


Meanwhile, the explosions which some feared might have made the
president cancel his Maiduguri trip, claimed the lives of at least four
persons, with eight other individuals said to have sustained various
degrees of injuries.


Three different locations experienced blasts but while casualties were
reported in Ayaje and Bulumkutu, there were no concrete reports from
Ajilari.


Official statements regarding the development are expected within the
hour.
