Bomb Explosion Kills Football Spectators in Adamawa

At least 14 people have been killed in a bomb attack on a bar that was screening a televised football match in north-eastern Nigeria, police say.

The attack place in the town of Mubi in Adamawa state, close to the border with Cameroon.

Adamawa is one of three states that have been placed under emergency rule because of an insurgency waged by Islamist Boko Haram militants.

However, no-one has yet said they carried out the latest attack.

“So far we have 14 dead while 12 are injured, some of them critically,” said the police spokesman for Adamawa state, Usman Abubakar.

Some reports put the death toll higher.

According to the BBC’s Nigeria correspondent, Will Ross, it is hard to get eyewitness accounts because of an overnight curfew in the area.
