Three male suicide bombers Thursday night struck at University of Maiduguri, but their mission was largely a flop. It was the fourth attack on the school since January.

The bombers at about 23.50 attempted to enter the female hostel, but were stopped by eagle-eyed security men.

One of them hurriedly detonated the Improvised Explosive Device (IED), strapped on his body.

He killed himself and injured three security men.

The other two scampered off and detonated their bombs near a construction site, close to the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.

Victor Isuku, the spokesperson of the Borno police command said:

“On 18/5/2017 at about 2350hrs, three male suicide bombers with IEDs strapped to their bodies, gained entry into the premises of university of Maiduguri.
