Boko Haram suicide bombers attacked a camp for internally displaced people and a nearby market in Konduga, Borno state Tuesday, killing at least 20 people.
Village chief Lawan Kalli said at least three suicide bombers entered Mandarari’s market around 5 p.m. posing as buyers, then an undetermined number went to the nearby IDP camp while at least one stayed at the market. They all detonated their explosives almost simultaneously, he said.
Musa Bura, a youth volunteer, said most members of the local defense force were on guard at the market and not the nearby camp.
“The suicide bombers came, three in number. One went into the camp and detonated and almost immediately everywhere turned into disarray, and in the confusion, the two other suicide bombers detonated in the market,” he said.
