YOLA: A bomb blast near a Nigerian market has killed 31 people, AP quoted a civil defense official as saying Friday.

Another 38 people are being treated in hospitals, according to Saad Bello, of the National Emergency Management Agency.

No group has immediately claimed responsibility for Thursday evening’s explosion in the northeastern city of Yola.

However, officials say the attack bore the hallmarks of similar attacks by the Islamic terror group Boko Haram.
