From Al Jazeera:

“Two schoolgirl suicide bombers killed 30 people and wounded dozens in a coordinated attack on a crowded market in the northeastern Nigerian town of Madagali, an army spokesman said.

Ahmadu Gulak, a driver who was buying tea at the market, said the two blasts struck simultaneously on Friday morning at opposite ends of a grains and vegetable market.

He saw many wounded taken to a nearby hospital by ambulance. There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

“The attack in Madagali was carried out by two female school children. They detonated two bombs at the same time killing 30 people and they also died,” said Major Badare Akintoye, a spokesman for an army unit in the nearby town of Mubi.

He said 57 people were also wounded in the bombings in Adamawa state.”
