(Reuters) - At least 30 people were killed in the northeastern Nigerian state of Borno after an improvised explosive device detonated on a bridge, sources told Reuters on Monday.

The bomb detonated at roughly 5 p.m. local time (1600 GMT) on a crowded bridge in the market town of Gamboru that leads into neighboring Cameroon.

Witnesses in the market town said more than 35 injured people were taken to the local hospital following the attack.

"It is an unfortunate day for us to witness this frustrating and devastating incident in our community," eyewitness Modu Ali Said told Reuters.

"I just heard a loud sound of explosions, before I realized I saw many of our friends and colleagues were killed," Said added.

A military spokesman said he would provide comment later in the evening.

Two sources with the Civilian Joint Task Force, a group of citizens formed to fight Boko Haram, confirmed the attack and the early death toll estimates.

No group immediately took responsibility. Both Boko Haram and the regional offshoot of Islamic State, known as ISWAP, are active in the area.

Terrible when people kill others for nothing. Thank God these clowns don't hold the balance of power in this world else they'd nuke everybody.

shocked The same state 40 private jets landed last week for the opulent wedding of the daughter of the GMD NNPC? If these elites can land safely then any part of Maiduguri should be safe for these poor souls.Alas! It's not so.So sad!

Yet Borno governor was involved in an effizzy condemning soldiers alleged to be collecting 1k from motorists though it's condemnable.Provide security, no they won't.

The leaders of this people being killed don't care for them.The armed forces are fighting a guerrilla warfare wherein they are just being sacrificed as pawns.God save this nation.Rest on people.
