Two female suicide bombers have blown themselves up in an Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camp in Borno State, killing no fewer than 56 people.

Health and rescue officials, who confirmed Tuesday’s bombings, said 78 people were taken away injured from the Dikwa IDPs camp. Dikwa is 85 kilometres outside Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

There are about 50,000 IDPs in the camp, it was learnt.

Officials blamed Boko Haram for the bombings which, was not known about until yesterday because of the disruption to telephone services.

The governor of neighboring Cameroon’s Far North province said two suicide bombers believed to have come from Nigeria also yesterday killed 10 people and injured 40 in a border village.
