Reports by Reuters claimed that at least 30 people were on Monday killed in Borno state after an improvised explosive device was detonated on a bridge.
The Herald gathered that the bomb ripped through a crowded market town of Gamboru on the bridge along Nigeria’s border with Cameroon
Eye witnesses in the market town said more than 35 injured people were taken to the local hospital following the attack.
One of the eye witnesses said: “It is an unfortunate day for us to witness this frustrating and devastating incident in our community. I just heard a loud sound of explosions, before I realized I saw many of our friends and colleagues were killed.”
Two sources with the Civilian Joint Task Force, a group of citizens formed to fight Boko Haram, confirmed the bomb blast.
