An eyewitness, Abba Ali, who spoke to THISDAY from Konduga, said the attack was on a fish market at about 8:30pm on Friday, even as he confirmed that it was executed by three suicide bombers, who also died in the attack.

He explained that the injured persons were referred to the Specialist Hospital, Maiduguri.

The sad incident which happened on Friday evening was confirmed by the state commissioner of Police Damian Chukwu.

Kaka said some meters away from where he was while the two other bombs were inside the market.

"We all ran for safety after the first thunderous blast occurred".

Boko Haram has been known to deploy young women and children as suicide bombers, in addition to sending men to attack mosques, markets and other places where crowds gather.

Victims with minor injuries were taken to local hospitals, the PM News reported citing the State Emergency Management Agency.

The official said the deceased and those in critical conditions have been moved to the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital and Maiduguri general hospital.

Earlier this month, six people were killed and 39 others injured in a suicide attack in northeastern Nigeria.

"The Nigerian Army will give out Three Million Naira (N3,000,000.00k) cash reward for any credible information that leads to the arrest of Abubakar Shekau, the fugitive factional Boko Haram terrorists' group leader".
