Nigeria: 3 Boko Haram suicide bombers kill at least 30 people in Borno
At least 30 people were killed and 42 wounded following a suicide attack by suspected Boko Haram terrorists in Nigeria’s northeastern state of Borno, a local emergency response team told Xinhua on Monday.
Three suicide bombers late Sunday detonated their improvised explosive devices (IEDs) among a group of football fans at a public viewing center and bar in Madarari community near Konduga area of the state.
Usman Kachalla, head of the search and rescue operations at State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), said two female suicide bombers and one male bomber carried out the dastardly act.
Kachalla, who led the rescue operation at the crime scene on Monday, attributed the high death toll to the closing down of road by security agencies which prevented humanitarian workers to provide support to the victims immediately after the incident.
