No fewer than four persons were killed in a suicide bomb attack at Amarwa community of Konduga local government area of Borno State.
The incident occurred when a male suicide bomber infiltrated the village and detonated an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) strapped to his body.
An eyewitness Mr Bukar Fantai, told newsmen that the bomber managed to sneak into the village disguising as a grain merchant.
Mr Fantai said that the insurgent first approached a shop keeper and offered sorghum for sale.
He said the terrorist, thereafter, went to a shade where many villagers gathered for relaxation and detonated the explosive.
A competent security source confirmed the attack to journalists saying that the wounded persons were referred to the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital (UMTH) for treatment.
