He said members of his family sustained injuries as a result of the attack and are receiving treatment at a hospital.

The attack caused panic in the affected communities as several residents in Maiduguri scampered for safety.

In February, many people were feared dead after the insurgents launched a similar attack while attempting to infiltrate Maiduguri.
