A bomb explosion rocked a market in Mubi, Adamawa State today and many people are feared dead.
Two suicide bombers entered the market and detonated their bomb vests at the crowdy market.
The state Police public relations officer confirmed the incident and said efforts are being made to evacuate the dead bodies.
There are also reports of blasts in and around a mosque which killed around 20 people in the northeast Nigerian town of Mubi same today.
It was gathered that the explosion happened in a mosque in Mubi, Adamawa, when Muslims were observing their afternoon prayer.
It was said that a boy who was putting on a suicide vest set off the bomb.
The blasts bore the hallmarks of Islamist militant group Boko Haram and follow Thursday’s attack by the jihadist group on Maiduguri, the capital of neighbouring Borno state, which killed four people.
