Fourteen people lost their lives while 47 were left injured following yet another bomb blast this morning in Damaturu, capital of Yobe State in Nigeria’s troubled North-East.

A report by Channels TV said that a female suicide bomber detonated the bomb at the entrance of the Sunday market in Damaturu.

The suicide bomber is believed to have carried out the operation on behalf of the terrorist Boko Haram sect.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Toyin Gbadegesin, confirmed the incident, revealing that the 47 wounded people are currently receiving treatment at the Sani Abacha Specialist Hospital in Damaturu.

The last attack in the state was on Friday, July 17, at the Eid prayer ground where Muslims had gathered to pray to mark the Eid-el-Fitr.

Thirteen people lost their lives in the twin attack which occurred within five minutes. The first one was close to the phase one Eid prayer ground, while the other went off three minutes later along Gwang Sabon Pegi Street.
