Borno Emergency Management Agency (BEMA) on Monday said 30 persons had died and 42 injured when three suspected suicide bombers detonated Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in Mandarari community of Konduga Local government area of the state.
Usman Kachala, BEMA Director Search, Rescue and Operations disclosed this to newsmen when he visited the scene of the attack on Monday. He said the incident occurred around 8pm on Sunday.
He said that the three suicide bombers, comprising two females and a male, detonated the IEDs in a local tea joint and film center in the community.
Kachala said that about 17 persons died instantly, adding that the death toll increased to 30 on Monday as a result of lack of immediate medical attention.
He said that his staff could not reach the spot of the incident as the military had closed the road to traffic and the hospital in Konduga did not have enough facilities to handle the situation.
“When my team and I arrived Konduga early this morning, the military prevented us from gaining access to the community to assist the victims.
“They told us they were given order from above not to open the road until 9 am,” he lamented.
