Authorities at the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital (UMTH), also confirmed that 29 victims of the explosion were still on admission at the hospital.

Bashir Tahir, Chairman of the UMTH Medical Advisory Committee, told NAN that the patients were also in stable condition.

“Thirty two patients were brought in, out of which three died; the 29 remaining are receiving treatment,” Mr. Tahir said.

He said the hospital had no challenges offering free treatment to the victims.

“We have no problem of money in providing treatment to the patients because the Victims Support Fund (VSF) had provided some Money for free treatment of bomb blasts and other attacks,” Mr. Tahir said.

Adamu Garba attacks Hillary Clinton for calling out President Buhari over #Lekkimassacre

Former presidential candidate, Adamu Garba has hit back at Hillary Clinton’s comment on the Lekki shooting

Recall that the former US Secretary of State had asked President Buhari and the Ngerian military to stop killing young Nigerian #EndSARS protesters.

Reacting to this, Adamu alleged that Hillary and others were playing at the entire breakdown of law and order in Nigeria.

He added that the former US Presidential candidate and other left wing actors have a sole agenda of fighting God and nature, turning people into aliens, gays, lesbians.

Adamu also described them as “blood sucking abortionist” who must leave the shores of Nigeria and Africa.

He tweeted;

I told you that we knew the script these guys are playing at: the entire breakdown of law & order in Nigeria Same Hilary spearhead the destruction of Libya, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and even Egypt at some point wants to import venom in Nigeria Nigerians are wiser, no way for you here

As most traveled & least accomplished Secretary of State of U.S, Hilary’s underwhelming Middle East policy saw the destruction of families, women, children, properties, government & people. This they planned to extend to Nigeria. She is not qualified to tell Nigeria what to do.

Let all these evil left wing actors, whose sole agenda is to fight against God and against nature, whose mission is to turn us into aliens, gays, lesbians, blood sucking abortionist, leave the shores of Nigeria and Africa We say NO to foreign medlars and alien cultures. Thanks.
