Borno attacks: Death Toll Rises To 30

The bomber, a male and female, went into a viewing center detonating their Improvised Explosive
Device (IED) at Mandarari ward, Konduga local government area at about 9:15 pm on Sunday.

The death toll in Sunday's Boko Haram suicide attack on a viewing centre has risen to 30 as emergency
services battle to save more lives.

Giving casualty figures, Director Emergency Response State Emergency Management Agency, Borno
state, Usman Kachalla, said 30 people have died so far with 42 critically injured.

The death toll rose from 20 to 30 due to poor facilities to treat the injured while many others died due
to lack of blood for transfusions.

Kachalla said: “When my team arrived Konduga early this morning, the military prevented us from
gaining access to the community to assist the victims.

“They told us they were given order from above not to open the road until 9 am," he lamented.
