The incident, which occurred two days after a similar blast in Madagali, Adamawa State left about 45 people dead and 52 others injured, has forced the Borno State Government to convoke a stakeholders’ meeting to find ways of checkmating the resurgence of bombing in the state. On its part, the Adamawa State Government has drafted over 70 health workers to Madagali to take care of the injured. According to NEMA officials, the two teenage girls detonated explosive devices strapped around their waists at 8:50 amyesterday, rudely shocking the peace of the biggest market in the troubled state capital.”
