Concise News has reliably gathered that a suicide bomber has attacked a cattle market on Monday in Maiduguri, capital of Borno state, north-east Nigeria.

The blast was confirmed on Monday by the spokesman for the Borno State Police Command, DSP Victor Isuku.

The attack is coming days after President Muhammadu Buhari said the jihadist group’s key camp in its last remaining enclave had fallen.

Police said the bomber, who struck the Kasuwan Shanu market in the central district of Kasuwa, was dead but did not give details of any other casualties.

Another witness said a number of people had been injured.

Nobody has claimed responsibility for the attack but it bears the signature of Boko Haram insurgents.
