Boko Haram twin bomb blast kills 47

A twin bomb blast has ripped through a market in Madagali town.

Officials say that about 47 people have been killed following the twin bomb attack.

The attack occurred at a busy market early Friday, December 9. Army officials say that about 67 people have also been wounded following the blast.

Madagali lies some 276km from the Adamawa State capital, Yola.

The town, which is close to neighbouring Borno State, was one of several others held by Boko Haram at the height of the group’s brutal insurgency.

The latest blast is the third in Madagali, following attacks by two female suicide bombers on December 28, 2015, at a busy motor park.

Thirty people were killed in that blast and 16 were injured.
