Update: Two Female Suicide Bombers Kill 30 in Adamawa

It is now confirmed that 30 people were killed, Friday noon, at a local market in Madagali, Adamawa State, north-eastern zone of the Nigeria.
Military sources said two female suicide bombers suspected to be members of the Boko Haram sect, were responsible for the attack.
“For now 30 were confirmed dead, while 67 were injured and have been evacuated to Michika hospital,” the Army source said.
Local sources had earlier said two female suicide bombers detonated the bombs at the grains and second hand cloths section of the market, Friday noon, killing dozens of people.
The Chairman of Madagali Local Government, Yusuf Muhammad, described the attack as a setback to relative peace enjoyed by residents who resumed normal commercial and social activities following successful military operations.
The town, which is close to neighbouring Borno State, was one of several others held by Boko Haram at the height of 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.
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 themselves in the middle of it.
