At least 30 killed, more than 100 injured in multiple suicide bombings in Nigeria: sources

A local official said that the first attack was carried out by a woman.

At least 30 people were killed and more than 100 injured after multiple suicide bombings in various locations across Nigeria over the weekend, sources said on Sunday.

The Emir of Gwaza, Alhaji Muhammad Shehu Tamta, told reporters that the first attack on Saturday was carried out by a woman.

Amir said, “The first suicide attack was masterminded by an unidentified woman who barged into the wedding reception of a popular youth in Gwaza with two children; she detonated her improvised explosive devices, killing herself and many others. People died,” Amir said.

“A few minutes later, another suicide bomber entered the funeral… nearby he detonated an improvised explosive device, and [I] Speaking to you now, the third explosion just happened. [a] With more casualties a few minutes ago,” Amir added.

Nigerian President Bola Tinubu condemned the attacks, calling them desperate acts of terrorism that reflect the increased pressure on terrorists and the success achieved in curbing their ability to carry out offensive operations.

Tinubu said his administration is taking necessary steps to protect citizens. He also vowed to bring those responsible to justice.

No group has claimed responsibility for the blasts.
