The attacks occurred late on Friday, when the suicide bombers detonated explosives at the Kasuwar Kifi, in the outskirts of Konduga town, the report said.

Source at the State Specialist Hospital told Saharareporters that 60 wounded persons were received last nights from Konduga blasts. "Twenty others were also injured", Mr. Chukwu disclosed.

"The Nigerian Army will give out Three Million Naira (N3,000,000.00k) cash reward for any credible information that leads to the arrest of Abubakar Shekau, the fugitive factional Boko Haram terrorists' group leader". The city is the birthplace of the Boko Haram extremist insurgency and has been a frequent target.

"Two of the bombers attacked the Tashan Kifi fish market".

The official News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) had reported that 22 people were killed and 28 others injured in the suicide bombing.

A fourth bomber also blew herself up outside the camp.

No one has claimed the responsibility for the attack, though several Nigerian analysts opined that the Boko Haram insurgent group could be responsible for the bombings.

Nicholas called the jihadists "callous" for "forcefully using the most vulnerable in our IED (improvised explosive device) couriers".

The United States, which considers Shekau an worldwide terrorist, has said it would offer up to $7 million for information on his whereabouts.
