GARKIDA, Nigeria, May 19 (UPI) -- A suicide bomber detonated explosives strapped to his body Tuesday at a livestock market in northeast Nigeria, killing at least seven people and injuring 14.
The bomb exploded around 12:15 p.m. local time in the village of Garkida in Adamawa state.
"From the information I received from Garkida, the suicide attack killed nine people including the bomber while 14 others sustained serious injuries and are receiving treatment in hospital," Jerry Kundusi, a member of the Adamawa state parliament for the region, told CNN.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but it is believed Boko Haram was responsible.
"The bomber is yet to be identified but no one needs to be told it is the handiwork of Boko Haram," Kundusi said.
