Death toll rises to 30 in Borno suicide attack

"We have over 40 people injured", Usman Kachalla, head of operations at the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), said on Monday.

He, therefore, urged all security agents to sustain surveillance in major hotspots across the country, consideration what he described as the unconventional methods deployed by terrorists.

He prayed that God would grant the souls of the departed eternal rest and comfort their families.

The president commended the efforts of emergency response workers and humanitarian organisations.

A few kilometers from the hall, the girls, whose ages are unknown, blew themselves up and killed another six people and injured 17 others.

Daily Trust had previously reported that dozens of people sustained injuries in the blast and no group had claimed responsibility for the attack yet.

Ousted Egyptian president Morsi collapses in court, dies
He was serving lengthy sentences on convictions of killing protesters in 2012, espionage involving Qatar, and a jailbreak. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan paid tribute to Morsi on the news of the former Egyptian president's death.

The attack happened around 9:00 pm (1800 GMT), said Ali Hassan, the leader of a self-defence group in the town.

Kachala said three suicide bombers, comprising two females and a male, detonated improvised explosive devices (IEDs) at a local tea joint and film center in the community.

Since then, more than 20,000 people have died and nearly two million people have been displaced, according to estimations from the United Nations. He added that the hospital in Konduga did not have enough facilities to handle the situation.

Konduga has been a target before. In July 2018, eight people were killed after a suicide bomber detonated explosives in a mosque.

At least 27,000 lives have been killed and about two million people have been forced to flee their homes in the decade-long conflict. A regional military coalition has been developed to control the terror groups.
