Reports say at least 14 persons have been killed in a bomb attack in the northeast state Adamawa, Sunday.
According to sources, the bomb went off at a football match viewing centre in Mubi, near the border with Cameroon. The attack is the latest in a series of bomb blasts that have rocked the country and claimed over 200 lives in just under a month.
It is the second time in 2 years the town is in the news for the violent loss of several lives, following an attack on October 1, 2012, by unknown gunmen in which over 30 students of Federal Polytechnic, Mubi were killed.
The perpetrators of the student massacre, rumoured to be members of Islamist terror group Boko Haram, were never apprehended by the government’s security apparatus.
Pending the outcome of investigations or the release of a statement claiming responsibility, Boko Haram will be viewed as main suspects for Sunday’s bombing.
