At least 30 people were killed on Monday, December 28, when two female suicide bombers attacked a busy motor park in Madagali town of Adamawa state.
According to a Premium Times report, apart from the 30 people who died at the spot when the bombers detonated their bombs, 16 others were injured.
This latest bomb attack follows a series of bomb attacks, between Sunday and Monday, by suspected Boko Haram insurgents on Maiduguri, the capital of the neighbouring Borno state.
Speaking on the incident, an eyewitness, Danladi Buba, said the two female suicide bombers detonated bombs at a mini market near a motor park at about 9am monday morning, killing about 30 people leaving 16 others injured.
Confirming the incident, the Brigade Commander of 28 Task Force Brigade, Mubi, Victor Ezugwu, said the casualty figure was yet to be established.
He said: “Two female suicide bombers struck at a garage in Madagali and detonated their devices, and we lost some beloved country men.”
The brigade commander said the injured had been taken to hospital adding that the situation had been brought under control.
Recall that just hours ago, THESHEET.NG reported a twin-blast in Maiduguri, Borno state. The blasts were said to have occurred at the Polo area of Maiduguri with one of them going off in a mosque.
A hospital source told newsmen that many dead bodies were brought in early in the morning, along with injured people. Over 50 people lost their lives in the wave of Sunday-Monday terrorists’ attacks in the area.
