The death toll from Friday’s suicide bombing in Adamawa State has risen to 56 with 177 sustaining various injuries, an official has said.

The Chairman of Madagali Local Government, Yusuf Muhammed, made this confirmation in contrast with previous reports as he added that 57 of the injured were critical and 120 minor.

He said the critically injured were rushed to Mubi General Hospital and Yola Specialists Hospital, while those that sustained minor injuries were treated and discharged.

Local sources had earlier said two female suicide bombers detonated the bombs at the grains and second hand cloths section of the market, Friday noon, killing dozens of people.

According to Mr. Muhammed, the attack is a setback to the relative peace enjoyed by residents who resumed normal commercial and social activities following successful military operations.He called on the federal government to deploy soldiers to the surrounding areas where he said Boko Haram insurgents had set up camps.
