The explosion went off at a park popularly called Muna Garage along side mafa road, at about 9a.m. in the capital city of the north-east Nigerian state.
A witness who said he was lucky to survive the incident said he saw about a dozen bodies covered with blood littering the scene.
“I thank God for sparing my life,,” said Usman Kachalla, a local trader. “I don’t know if it is a suicide bomber, we just heard the blast and I saw my self covered with dust.”
Also Bello Dambatta, an emergency response official, says six people were killed at the scene of Wednesday’s attack and another died at a hospital. He says at least four people were injured.
It is unclear if a bomb had been planted on the taxi or if a passenger detonated explosives after boarding. The explosion occurred as the taxi approached a gas station.
Even though Maiduguri city had been spared deadly bombings in recent months as soldiers were able to shoot suicide attackers before they reached their targets.
