Boko Haram Blamed For Suicide Bombing That Killed 8, Wounded At Least 14

“Most of the bodies are mutilated, heads and other parts removed,” said vendor Lami Aboki.

State legislator Jerry Kundisi said the blast killed nine people, including the bomber, and injured 14.

Cattle trader Abubakar Musa said the explosion happened near the sheep market. He told The Associated Press that he counted nine bodies at the scene.

But some including merchant Abubakar Garba said the bomb appeared to have been planted on the dirt road between the sheep market and vegetable stalls. The attack in Garkida, a rural town 165 kilometers (100 miles) north of the Adamawa state capital, Yola, was among a slew of attacks that have occurred since multinational forces broke up Boko Haram’s so-called Islamic caliphate by driving the insurgents out of all northeastern towns.
