> Special Forces of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF), in
> conjunction with some Nigerian Army (NA) troops,
> successfully foiled a suicide bombing attack by Boko Haram
> Terrorists (BHTs) at University of Maiduguri,
>  Borno State in the night of 8 April 2018. The BHT suicide
> bombers tried to gain access into the University but were
> quickly detected by the NAF Special Forces. Meanwhile, the
> vest on one of the suicide bombers detonated before they
> could gain access into the
>  hostel, leading to a commotion. However, there was no
> reported fatality except for the suicide bomber, whose
> counterparts immediately fled, when the NAF Special Forces
> and the NA troops opened fire on them. The NAF Agusta Light
> Utility Helicopter (LUH) then
>  went in pursuit of the fleeing BHTs, following which an
> additional suicide bomber was identified and neutralized.
> The NAF Agusta LUH was still searching for the other fleeing
> BHTs as at the time of filing this report. Members of the
> populace, especially around
>  the University premises are, therefore, requested to be
> very vigilant.
