An explosion occurred at a Jimeta Main Market in Yola, Adamawa State on Thursday evening.
It is suspected that the source of the explosion was a suicide bomber, Premium Times reports.
A resident of the town, Salihu Aliyu said:
“We just finished observing the Maghrib prayer when we heard a loud blast in the direction of the market… You know many traders also come out of the market and display their wares outside the main market to also observe the night market…there was even traffic gridlock in the area with many Keke Napep operators jostling for passengers when the bomb exploded.”
An eyewitness said at least 10 people died and up to 30 were injured.
