[b]Two female suicide bombers detonated bombs at a screening area for Eid prayers in Damaturu early Friday morning, killing at least 50 people, the army has confirmed.

The army places the time of the explosion at 7.40am, just as eid prayers got underway to mark the end of the month-long Ramadan fast.

Spokesman of the Nigeria army Colonel Sani Usman said the two women, an elderly woman and a 10-year-old girl detonated devices at screening areas for intending Muslim worshippers at Layin Gwange, Damaturu and at "Phase One",  (in front of former state secretariat), Damaturu."

At least “43 people died in the first explosion and several people were injured,” said Usman.
Seven more were killed in the second explosion.
"The situation is under control. Both Yobe State Governor and the Chief of Army Staff, sympathise with and urged the people to stay calm and be security conscious,” Usman added.

Usman noted that  no amount of terrorist act would deter resolve to stamp out terrorism and insurgency.[/b]

When will army start to announce number of Boko Haram victims that they killed? Since Buhari took over we have not heard such news neither have we heard the army attacking Boko terrorists.

Buhari said "we are winning the war". I don't know whether he was speaking on behalf of Boko haram or he was simple being silly.

Over 2000 Nigerians (and possibly Sai Buharists) have died since may 29. Buhari is still unconcerned, he's busy pursuing Sambo Dasuki and chasing shadows. RIP to the victims

He was speaking from both end.
Barcanista, even during gej worst terrorism attack, it wasn't as worst as this. I mean explosion occurs everyday in Nigeria since Buhari was sworn in as president. It was never been this bad
