A suicide attack in northeastern Nigeria left dozens killed on Monday, local media reported.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Two women attacked a shopping facility near a motor park in Madagali, a town in the state of Adamawa, allegedly leaving about 30 people dead, Premium Times reported, citing a witness.

According to the media outlet, the incident was confirmed by Victor Ezugwu, the Brigade Commander of 28 Task Force Brigade, Mubi. According to Ezugwu, the number of casualties is yet to be determined.

Between Sunday and Monday, suspected militants of the Boko Haram extremist group carried out several gun and bomb attacks in the neighbouring state of Borno. According to media reports, the attacks in the city of Maiduguri killed over 30 people and injured more than 100.

Northeastern Nigeria has been mired in a conflict since 2009, when Boko Haram began large-scale attacks in the region, seeking to impose strict Sharia law. In February, the group expanded its attacks to neighboring Niger, Cameroon and Chad, prompting these states' governments to launch a regional offensive against them.
