Multiple Bomb Blasts By Suspected Boko Haram Terrorists Kill in Adamawa

Daily Trust newspaper reports that three bombs have exploded in Madagali town in the northern part of Adamawa State, killing scores of people.

Eye witnesses said  three explosions occurred this morning at a crowded motor park on the outskirt of the town.

Casualty figure is not clear as volunteers and security men were evacuating bodies from the scene.

A local official who did not want his name published confirmed the attack, saying there was yet no detail of  casualty and that it was not clear whether the attack was suicide.

Recall that two days ago, suspected Boko Haram insurgents reportedly killed two people and abducted three school girls in Madagali, Adamawa state. Madagali borders Borno state and have increasingly come under Boko Haram attacks.

The Spokesperson of the 28 Task Force Battalion in Mubi, Major Bakare Akintoye did not pick phone calls from our correspondent.
