An official report has put death toll in the twin blasts that rocked Adamawa state, northeast Nigeria on Tuesday, at 27. It also said 56 people were injured. Ahmad Sajoh, the commissioner for information in the state, said the blast occurred in Kasuwan Gwanjo (second hand clothes market) and a mosque within the market.
“While condemning the satanic, cowardly and dastardly act, His Excellency Sen. Mohammed Umar Jibrilla Bindow, the executive Governor of Adamawa State, had ordered the immediate provision of medical supplies and mobilization of medical officers to the general hospital in Mubi.
“In addition, the Adamawa State Emergency Management Agency (ADSEMA) had been ordered to supply food and non-food items to the hospital to cater for victims and victims relations,” said Sajoh.
The statement urged people to donate blood and be more vigilant and reiterated the government’s commitment to protection of lives and properties of all citizens.
