Three suicide bombers late Sunday detonated their improvised explosive devices (IEDs) among a group of football fans at a public viewing center and bar in Madarari community near Konduga area of the state.

Usman Kachalla, head of the search and rescue operations at State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), said two female suicide bombers and one male bomber carried out the dastardly act.

Kachalla, who led the rescue operation at the crime scene on Monday, attributed the high death toll to the closing down of road by security agencies which prevented humanitarian workers to provide support to the victims immediately after the incident.

A combined team of the police Explosives Ordinance Device team and the army have been deployed to render the area safe before the evacuation of the wounded and the dead victims.

Boko Haram, which launched attacks in Nigeria's northeast a decade ago, is known for its agenda to maintain a virtual caliphate in the most populous African country.
