Residents of 1000 Housing Estate in Maiduguri, Borno State capital, woke up to an explosion on Saturday morning.

The explosion believed to have been triggered by Boko Haram fighters sparked tension in the area.

A rocket launcher also landed at Gomari Airport, a community about four kilometres from the airport located in the state capital, on Saturday morning.

Details of the incidents were sketchy at the time of filing this report.

In a video seen by Daily Trust, residents of the estate were seen discussing the incidents in groups.

A large crowd was also seen in one of the houses affected by the explosion.

A resident said no life was lost in the incident but this could not independently verify this at the time of this report.
