Scores of people were feared killed on Tuesday when an explosion occurred at a motor park in Jimeta, Yola, the capital of Adamawa State.
The blast, sources said, could have come from Improvised Explosive Device allegedly planted by members of the Boko Haram sect.
Eyewitnesses said that the motor park was not from a vegetable market. “I cannot say how many people died in the explosion but human parts littered the place. It happened when traders were closing shop for the day,” a resident, who simply identified himself as Mustapha, said.
Security agents were said to have rushed to the scene to take the injured to the hospital while the dead were taken to mortuaries of some medical facilities in the town.
As of the time of filing this report the police had not issued any statement on the incident
