Adamawa Bomb Blast Death Toll Hits 45, 120 Severely Injured

The death toll of the bomb detonated by two female suicide bombers at a local market in Madagali, Adamawa State on Friday has hit no fewer than 45 with 120 people severely injured.

Yusuf Muhammed, Chairman, Madagali Local Government, Adamawa, said the critically injured were rushed to Mubi General Hospital and Yola Specialist Hospital, while those that sustained minor injuries were treated and discharged.

The spokesman of the 28th Task Force Battalion of the Nigerian Army, Badere Akintoye, said the two teen female suicide bombers sneaked into the busy market and detonated the bombs they were carrying in the middle of it.

“For now 30 were confirmed dead and another 67 injured and have been evacuated to Michika hospital” the army major had said on Friday.

Muhammad described the attack as a setback to relative peace enjoyed by residents who resumed normal commercial and social activities following successful military operations.

He called on the Federal Government to deploy soldiers to the surrounding areas where he said Boko Haram insurgents had set up camps.
