Bomb hits Madagali again

Bomb blast

At least three suicide bombers blew themselves Friday morning in Madagali, Adamawa, North East Nigeria, residents and officials have said.

Residents said three suicide bombers blew up themselves while approaching a security check point, where vehicles are stopped and screened before being allowed into the town.

“This morning the suicide bombers blew up themselves after they were intercepted by local vigilantes stationed at the check point and already two vigilantes lost their lives in the process,” Ladi Musa, a local resident, said.

But when contacted on phone , the chairman of Madagali Yusuf Muhammad Gulak, told journalists that the casualty figure was yet to be established.

“Presently I am on my way to the town, but I was reliably told that the incident occurred at the entrance of the town where people gather for screening before getting to the town.

‘’You know today is the market day, and probably the suicide bombers might be aiming the market where people do business and other transactions.

‘’I am yet to get the casualty details,’’ the chairman said.

The member representing Madagali and Michika Federal constituency, Adamu Kamale, said that, ‘’ We wake up again today with yet another sad development as at 8:30 a.m. we got reports that bombs exploded at a checking point in Madagali.

‘’Though we are yet to get details of lost of lives but we heard that there were injuries.

Akintoye Badare, a Major and spokesman of the 28th Task Force Battalion, Mubi said he was yet to get details.

    When you neither arrest nor prosecute Islamic terrorists, their financiers, sponsors and those Govt officials in Bornu state, traditional palaces in the North and presidency who shield the terrorists and insulate them from prosecution in the courts of law, then bombings will continue to occur. When a state Governor – Ruffia of Kaduna pays monthly salaries to terrorists then they will continue to attack, and when no one tears his Nigerian passport to protest the criminality of silence in state sponsored terrorism against unarmed citizens, bombings will continue.

    …as usual since May 29th 2016, ONLY the 3 suicide bombers are casualties…and as usual, they detonated their bombs outside the entrance at a safe distance from the crowd. Hmmmm…..!!! Do you see what I see?

    — Why do the suicide bombers no longer hit their targets?
    —Why do they now detonate their vests even with no provocation?
    — Why do we never get REAL photos from scenes of after the attacks? PT keeps using the same photo above in the last 5 suicide attacks reported on this website. Recall that when during Dr Jonathan’s presidency PT used to provide photos even during attacks or immediately after. What happened to your cameras?

    Deris God Oh! Time will tell

    • too much DT in all of that… means nothing.

    • Otile

      This is a lying corrupt government. Don’t believe anything you hear from them until it is verified. Three suicide bombers blew themselves up in a crowd but no one else died except the bombers – a crock of bullshit.

    • TRUTH MASTER

      From your submission, it is clear that the only thing that would have made you happy is if these suicide bombers have killed many people. This is called sadism!

      PREMIUM TIMES can never convince me. President Buhari is the one I believe. President Buhari
      said he has defeated and killed anything called BOKO HARAM since last year December.
      How possible that dead BOKO HARAM will wake up two weeks from the grave to start
      killing our people again? How possible? PREMIUM TIMES can never convince me O.
      There is nothing called Boko Haram in Nigeria again forever more. Sai Baba Buhari.
