Mr Sa’ad Bello, the National Emergency Management Agency coordinator in charge of Adamawa and Taraba, has confirmed twin bomb blasts in Madagali Market in Adamawa.

Bello, however, said the number of casualty was yet to be ascertained.

Also confirming the incident, the Chairman of Madagali Local Government, Alhaji Yusuf Mohammed, said the incident which occurred around noon was at the animal and grains sections of the market.

“Certainly there is casualty but I can’t really give you a figure for now,” Mohammed said.

A resident of Madagali, who simply identified himself as Hamma, said many people were affected as the blasts occurred around the busy areas of the market.

“You know today is our market day. I just pray God to minimises the casualty,” Hamma said.
