One dead, Two Injured in Mubi, Adamawa government confirms- Jeremy Spell Blog

The Adamawa Commissioner of
Information and Strategy, Mr Ahmad Sajoh,
has confirmed the death of a boy with two
others injured following an explosion in
Mubi town.
Sajoh told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in
Yola on Sunday, that the explosion
suspected to be from an Improvise
Explosive Device (IED) occurred at a scrap
materials gathering point along kabang
area of the town.
“It’s not a suicide attack as being
speculated. It involved three children
gathering scrapped metals.
“One of boys, Saidu Ahmed picked up the
device which exploded immediately killing
him and injuring his two friends who are
now receiving treatment at the Mubi
General Hospital.
“Parents of the affected children have been
identified,” Sajoh said.
He urged for more vigilance by the public
and the need to caution children on picking
strange objects to avoid a repeat of the
incident.
Also confirming the incident, the
spokesman of Adamawa Police Command,
SP Othman Abubakar said the command
was working on a theory that the explosive
might have been given to the children by
somebody to take to the metal gathering
point.
NAN recalled that Mubi witnessed a twin
blast by suspected suicide bombers last
month resulting in the killing of over 20
people.
