Boko Haram Reportedly Responsible for Nigerian Suicide Bomb

On Tuesday, the Associated Press reported there was an overnight suicide bombing in northeastern Nigeria, which claimed the lives of 32 people and wounded 80.

Boko Haram is reportedly behind it. It had been three weeks since Nigeria’s last bombing.

The suicide bomber exploded as truckers were tucking into dinner at the busy marketplace where vendors were selling sugarcane.

Police spokesman Deputy Superintendent Otham Abubakar, said most of the victims were vendors and passersby.
