Blast kills three, injures 19 at a Nigerian market

Three people were killed and 19 injured after an explosion at a crowded market in Nigeria’s Taraba state in the east of the country, local police said on Wednesday.

Nigeria is plagued by insecurity as armed gangs and an insurgency carry out attacks against communities and security targets in northern parts of the country.

Police spokesman for Taraba, Usman Abdullahi, said the blast in the rural Iware community occurred on Tuesday at a drinking spot in a section of a busy market, leaving three dead and more than a dozen people with injuries.

“It is suspected to have been caused by an improvised explosive device that detonated. Investigations are ongoing,” Abdullahi told Reuters via a phone message. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
