A Militia and humanitarian sources on Saturday told AFP that a teenage girl blew herself up in a crowd in NorthEast Nigeria’s Borno State, killing at least three.
According to the aid worker, Abubakar Mohammed, he said; “We evacuated three dead bodies and two people who were seriously injured from the scene.”
The attack was said to have happened in the town of Konduga, about 38 kilometres (24 miles) from the regional capital Maiduguri.
The attacker set off her explosives among a group of men at a hangout next to the local chief’s home, said Ibrahim Liman, an anti-jihadist militia leader who gave the same toll.
The dreaded Boko Haram has repeatedly targeted Konduga and surrounding villages using suicide bombers. The sect typically attacks soft civilian targets such as mosques, markets, and bus stations, often using young women as bombers.
Last year alone, at least 30 people were killed in Konduga when three bombers detonated their explosives outside a hall where football fans were watching a match on TV.
Boko Haram and a splinter group, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), have killed 36,000 people and displaced around two million since 2009.
The jihadist conflict has spread into neighbouring Chad, Niger, and Cameroon, prompting a regional military coalition to end the violence.
