At least 10 people have been killed in north-eastern Nigeria after a female suicide bomber reportedly detonated explosives in Yoba state’s Gojba town.
A witness identified the bomber as being about 12 years old and said she detonated her explosives in the middle of traders and customers in a market area, reported the BBC.
The Nigerian army had retaken the town of Gujba from the militant group Boko Haram earlier this year.
However, the Islamist group has not yet commented on the bombing.
Two female suicide bombers attacked the north-eastern city of Maiduguri a day before this incident happened, killing at least 20 people.
