KADUNA, Nigeria: More than 30 people were killed on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) when a bomb blast ripped through packed crowds in Yola, northeast Nigeria, just days after President Muhammadu Buhari visited declaring that Boko Haram were close to defeat. The explosion happened at about 8:20 pm (7:20 pm Manila time on Tuesday) in the Jambutu area of the Adamawa state capital, although it was not immediately clear whether it was caused by a suicide bomber or an improvised explosive device. “So far, we’ve recorded about 32 dead and about 80 injured,” said Sa’ad Bello, the Yola coordinator for the National Emergency Management Agency.
