A boy is reported to have detonated a suicide vest in a crowded market in Gombi, Adamawa State on Friday. Early reports on the scene say that the explosion has killed many people.
The Daily Trust confirmed the blast from sources in a nearby vigilante group during a telephone conversation. The vigilante member reported that at least twenty people are understood to have died in the blast, but no official number has been released at the time of publication.
Gombi was liberated from Boko Haram control in 2014. However, terrorists have made several attempts to recapture the town since then.
