At least 57 people were also wounded in the bombings Aljazeera reports

There have been no claims to the bombing but Boko Haram islamist terrorist group might be behind the attack after waging a seven year insurgency against the government of Nigeria using suicide bombers. The terrorist group occupied the town for several months before it was recaptured by the Nigerian army.
