Two blasts have hit the capital of Chad today 15th June, at least one suicide bomber attacked the police and intelligence offices in N’Djamena on Monday, while one of bombers attacked the police academy where a graduation ceremony was going on, the country’s interior minister, Abderahim Bireme Hamid said.

A police official who spoke on condition of anonymity as he was not authorised to speak to the media said at least 10 people had been killed in that attack, according to the AP news agency. At least 30 cadets were reportedly killed. Meanwhile, one witness at the police station told Reuters that he had seen three corpses.

Social media users in the capital said that a number of deaths had been reported and that Boko Haram was suspected of carrying out the attack. The government convened an emergency meeting following the explosions, an official said on condition of anonymity.

Bireme Hamid, said security forces had sealed down the region but the situation was enduring. He said it was too early to give any death toll from the occurrence. But “I can confirm that it was a suicide attack,” he said.

Chad has become a major assistant in the fight against the insurgency across West Africa, playing a significant role in assaults on al Qaeda-linked groups in Mali and Boko Haram terrorists in Nigeria. It should be mentioned that there have been a number of attacks near Chad’s border with Nigeria.

However, N’Djamena has so far not yet been attacked. The riverside city, which lies on the border with Cameroon, is the headquarters for a regional taskforce being launched to fight Boko Haram, supposed to group troops from Nigeria, Chad, Niger, Cameroon and Benin.

The joint force, based in the Chad capital Ndjamena, will be up and running by July 30 with a permanent Nigerian leader, a concession to Buhari’s opposition to rotating commanders.

There was pandemonium in the Jikwoyi axis of the Nyanya-Karshi road in Abuja, on Monday morning as security agents allegedly clashed with hoodlums who were said to have killed a policeman overnight in the area.

Eyewitnesses confirmed that the operation led to a riot by the hoodlums while workers and commuters were on their way to the city centre.

The crisis was said to involve police officers and scavengers popularly known as “Mai bolas.” who set at least one car on fire.

The security operatives were said to have chased them to their hideouts around the area, which were later brought down.

While the crisis lasted, vehicular movement was blocked on both sides of the Nyanya-Karshi dual-carriage road as drivers turned around to avoid getting caught in the crossfire.

A combined team of security forces was said to have successfully dislodged the hoodlums and arrested a number of them before order was restored in the area.
