Nigeria: Suicide bombing kills 32 and injures another 80

A night-time suicide bombing has killed 32 people and wounded 80 others on Tuesday. It happened at a truck stop in northeastern town Yola, Nigeria, an emergency official said.

Tuesday night’s blast has broken a three-week hiatus in bombings in the country after a number of suicide attacks culminated in twin explosions in mosques in two northeastern cities that killed 42 people and wounded more than 100 on Oct. 23rd.

The terrorist attack is being blamed on Boko Haram extremists who have already caused a lot of horror in the country so far. Urban suicide bombings this year alone have killed over 2000 people and injured many more.

Over 20,000 people have been killed so far in the 6-year-old Islamic uprising that has since spread to neighbouring countries.

President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria said in a tweet. “The enemies of humanity will never win. Hand in hand, we will rid our land of terrorism,”
