Explosions believed to have been set off by suicide bombers have rocked the Muna Garage area of Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.
Four explosions, the first which went off around 9 pm, have been heard in the area.
Details about the explosion are still sketchy but unconfirmed reports claim the explosion was the result of an attack by four suicide bombers that infiltrated the area.
The military is currently combing the area to restore order.
Residents of the area are indoors owing to the dusk to dawn curfew imposed on Muna Garage because of the frequent suicide attacks in the area.
The curfew in other parts of Maiduguri starts at 10 pm.
