Two suicide bombers, an elderly woman and a 10-year-old girl, have killed at least 12 people in the north-eastern Nigerian city of Damaturu as worshippers gathered to mark the Muslim Eid al-Fitr holiday, a military spokesman has said.

The pair detonated their bombs at around 06:40 GMT on Friday as worshippers queued for security screening to enter an open-air praying area in Layin Gwange, Damaturu, Colonel Sani Usman told the Reuters news agency.

“Four persons died in the first explosion and seven people were injured. While in the second explosion, five people lost their lives and 11 people were wounded,” he said.

In a separate attack in northern Nigeria, a male suicide bomber also reportedly detonated himself while riding in a motorised carriage, Al Jazeera’s Yvonne Ndege reported from the capital Abuja.

It was unclear in which town the attack took place, and there were no additional details about casualties.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for any of the attacks but such incidents are often blamed on the armed group Boko Haram.

On Thursday, about 50 people were killed in bomb attacks at a market in Gombe, about 200km from Damaturu.

Boko Haram has killed thousands of people and left about 1.5 million others displaced during a six-year armed conflict in which it has tried to set up a state adhering to strict Islamic law in the northeast of Africa’s most populous country.

President Muhammadu Buhari has made defeating the armed group his top priority.

However, since he was inaugurated on May 29, hundreds of people have been killed in bombings and attacks.

Buhari replaced his defence chiefs on Monday as part of an attempt to step up the campaign against the group.

The violence is likely to be high on the agenda when he meets US President Barack Obama for talks in Washington on Monday.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
