Twin Bomb in northeast Nigeria kill at least 12 people in Yola

A bomb at a camp for people who have fled Boko Haram and a suicide attack on a bus station killed at least 12 people in northeast Nigeria on Friday, officials said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the bombings. One bomb was at a camp for internally displaced persons (IDPs) at a school in a hamlet on the outskirts of the Adamawa state capital, Yola.

"So far seven persons lost their lives and 20 persons were injured in the bomb blast that occurred in Malkohi Internally Displaced Persons camp," said Sani Datti, a spokesman for the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).

It was the first bomb attack on such a target in the conflict. Most IDPs are living in government-run camps, with host families or with religious organisations in the city of Maiduguri in Borno state, the heartland of the insurgency.
