Security forces will maintain a heightened security posture in Maiduguri and its environs, Borno State, in the coming hours following suspected Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) rocket attacks the morning of December 23rd. The attack comes ahead of the visit of President Muhammadu Buhari, who is scheduled to arrive the same day. Initial unconfirmed reports indicate that improvised rockets impacted the Ngomari, Bulumkutu, and Ayafe areas located near Maiduguri International Airport (MIU). Casualties and damage to infrastructure have been reported.
Movement of troops and additional security measures such as checkpoints are certain in the vicinity of Maiduguri in the coming hours. Further such attacks remain possible.
