Suspected members of the Boko Haram sect have launched yet another attack on the University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID).
A source told TheCable that a suicide bomber struck close to one of the hostels in the university around 7:50pm on Monday.
Details of the attack are still sketchy.
The insurgents have carried out a series of attacks on UNIMAID. In January 2017, the sect struck in the university killing four people, including an infant and a professor.
Between then and now, the institution has recorded at least five attacks from Boko Haram.
Last year, Dani Mamman, chairman Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) UNIMAID chapter said at least 70 lecturers have resigned from the university since 2009 owing to the Boko Haram insurgency.
