Maiduguri — Despite the 24-hour curfew imposed on Maiduguri and it's environs following the deadly clash between Boko Haram terrorists and the military who foiled a daring attack on Giwa Barracks, Friday, multiple explosions and gunshots have again rocked the general area of the barracks at about 8:15am on Saturday.

Vanguard gathered that many of the terrorists regrouped and relaunched another attack on the barracks early Saturday.

An eye witness close to Giwa Barracks who also reside in the area told our Correspondent that the ongoing multiple explosions and sporadic gunshots have forced many residents flee the area.
