A woman bomber reportedly blew up her self and killed 27 others at a market in Konduga, a village near Maiduguri. This is coming barely five hours after the launching of the special force, mobile strike teams by the theatre commander operations Lafiya Dole, with directives to track down Boko Haram spiritual leader, Abubakar Shekau.

According to Daily Post,the attack by suicide bombers on Mandarari town of Konduga Local Government Area at about 5:50 pm was the third in series within the month of August, 2017.

Although details of the attack were still sketchy, a member of the civilian JTF, who identified himself as Aminu Sani reports in Maiduguri that the number of casualties was not certain. He, however, said dozens were feared killed in the attack. “Our people from Konduga and those who left from here with soldiers are yet to return. “The National Emergency Management Agency and State Emergency Management Agency have also sent their staff to the area. I believe by tomorrow we should be able to know the number,” Aminu said. According to him, “the attack occurred at a motor park, and today is the market day, which means several people were affected.” The army and the police are yet to make statement to this effect as of the time of this report.
