Boko Haram fighters staged gun and suicide attacks on a military camp outside a university in Nigeria’s troubled north, the emergency services said on Monday, prompting students to flee.

The jihadists attacked the camp outlying the perimeter wall of the University of Maiduguri around 2030 GMT Sunday, forcing troops to withdraw before a bomber detonated his explosives.

Maiduguri is the birthplace of the Boko Haram movement and has been repeatedly attacked by the group.

“We evacuated the remains of a suicide bomber who blew himself up inside the lodging used by soldiers guarding the rear parameter of the university,” said Bello Dambatta, the chief security officer for Borno state emergency services.

“Luckily no soldier was hurt in the attack as there were no troops inside the building at the time,” Danbatta told AFP.

The fighters had waded through deep trenches dug around the university fence to stave off Boko Haram incursions.
