At least 25 people were killed while many others were gravely injured yesterday when bombs detonated at a drinking joint in Maiduguri, scene of recurrent deadly attacks by the Boko Haram sect.

The explosions happened around 5.30pm at Dala Kabomti area in the Borno State capital when hundreds of people had gathered at the popular joint where assorted beers were sold.

Witnesses said at least three separate bombs went off at the open drinking joint, scattering the tents in the vicinity.
