“After a few moments, we were informed that the explosion had occurred in a nearby beer parlour.”


The incident was confirmed by local government officials.

Sanda Kara Bade, the Executive Chairman of Bade Local Government, said he had dispatched a security team to the location and ordered an investigation into the cause of the explosion.

According to him, the injured victims were evacuated to a government facility for treatment.

It is unclear the group behind the explosion, which happened two days after suspected Boko Haram insurgents reportedly slaughtered about 10 persons at ‘Kwari’, a brothel in Geidam Local Government Area of Yobe.

Attacks on two bars in Taraba State were claimed by the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) last week.
