According to police sources, a landmine explosion killed three civilians in the Konduga district of Borno state (northeast) on Wednesday, June 21. The day prior, two men were killed and six others injured in a roadside ambush carried out against a convoy heading from Maiduguri to the town of Damboa. Boko Haram is highly suspected to be behind both of these attacks.

The security environment in Nigeria is complex and particularly poor in the northeast of the country due to the presence of armed groups. Some Western governments consequently advise against travel to certain areas of the northeast (e.g. Borno, Yobe, Gombe, Bauchi, and Jigawa as well as parts of Kano and Adamawa states). Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel to these areas.
