Bomb blasts kill 27 in Mubi, Nigeria


Updated: March 7, 2021

At least 27 people have been killed and 56 injured in two bomb blasts in Mubi town, Nigeria’s northeastern state of Adamawa.

Local newspapers quoted the state commissioner of information and strategy, Ahmad Sajoh, as disclosing the casualty figures. Sajoh said at least 56 injured persons were on admission in the hospital.

He said the blasts occurred in Kasuwan Gwanjo, a market for used clothes, as well as within a mosque.

“While condemning the satanic, cowardly and dastardly act, his excellency Senator Mohammed Umar Jibrilla Bindow, the executive governor of Adamawa state, had ordered the immediate provision of medical supplies and mobilization of medical officers to the general hospital in Mubi.

“In addition, the Adamwa state emergency management agency had been ordered to supply food and non-food items to the hospital to cater for victims and victims relations,” the commissioner said.

Boko Haram has killed tens of thousands of people in Nigeria since 2009 and displaced more than two million others.
