Residents of 1000 Housing Estate in Maiduguri, Borno State capital, woke up to an explosion on Saturday morning.

In a video seen by the source, residents of the estate were discussing the incidents in groups.

A large crowd was also seen in one of the houses affected by the explosion.

A resident said no life was lost in the incident but Daily Trust could not independently verify this at the time of this report.

A military source said troops of 33 artillery, Njimtelo, opened fire when they sighted insurgents on the outskirts of Maiduguri.

The insurgents were said to have also engaged troops in a gun battle.

The incident happened after at least 20 persons, including two army officers, lost their lives when suspected ISWAP fighters and troops clashed at a military base in Rann, headquarters of Kala Balge Local Government Area of Borno.

Security sources said the incident occurred around 1:30am of Friday at Rann, which shares borders with Cameroon.

It was learnt that the troops killed more than a dozen of the outlawed group and destroyed their operations vehicles.

There was also an attack at Malam Fatori, headquarters of Abadam Local Government Area of Borno.

The town, which shares a land border with Niger Republic, had been attacked severally by Boko Haram fighters.
