Suicide bombers kill scores in Maiduguri.

Posted on

Two suicide bombers blew themselves up at a crowded market in Maiduguri city, causing many casualties at about 11:23am today.

At least 30 people were killed when the bombers detonated themselves, witnesses told AP news agency.

Witness Sani Adamau told Reuters news agency that the second blast occurred while people were trying to help those injured in the first blast.

A youth vigilante source confirmed that the female attacker kept a parcel in one of the shops on One-way, a commercial area beside the popular Monday Market, telling the traders that she had something to pick from the market.

“The package detonated few minutes later. And as people were still wondering what happened and trying to rescue the injured, a bomber in the same area detonated a bomb planted on her; this claimed so many lives,” the source said.

The bombers were said to be one girl and one boy.

Boko Haram has not commented on the explosions.
