Suicide Bombers Hit Market, Kill 15 in Borno

It was another bad day for the people of Konduga, Borno State, when three suicide bombers, suspected to be members of the Boko Haram terrorist group, detonated bombs strapped to their bodies killing at least 15 persons while 18 sustained injuries.
They were said to have struck at a market on Friday.
Bulama Kaka, a resident who witnessed the incident, said it occurred around 7pm.
Kaka said some metres away from where he was while the two other bombers were inside the market. He said some traders were affected.
“We all ran for safety after the first thunderous blast occurred. Many people I know were killed in the attack,” he said.
An official of the State Emergency Management Agency confirmed the incident, saying victims with minor injuries were receiving treatment at a hospital in Konduga.
He added that those who lost their lives and people in critical condition have been moved to the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital and Maiduguri General hospital.
The attack happened one day after the army placed a bounty of N3m on Abubakar Shekau, leader of the sect.
