The killings occurred when two suicide bombers detonated their explosives at a mosque and a market in Mubi, northeast Nigeria, residents said.
A local volunteer Habu Saleh, who was speaking with the Agence France Presse, AFP, said: “We have evacuated dozens of dead and injured people to the hospital and the rescue operation is still ongoing.”
A medical source at the Mubi General Hospital said they had “so far received 37 dead bodies and dozens of injured from the two blast scenes”.
This has attracted a statement from President Donald Trump who has promised to assist Nigeria in combating the problem of Boko Haram insurgency as seen below:
