The Public Relations Officer of the Borno Police Command, ASP Victor Isuzu, confirmed the incident. File: Bomb blast Isuzu said they were repelled by security operatives at the University and that the third terrorist was gunned down by security operatives while trying to flee the scene of the attack. “The attack came at a time when students are on vacation.
