    nigeria suicide attacks: death toll reaches 45at least 45 people were killled and 33 others injured in the twin suicide bomb explosions by two female suicide bombers in a market in nigeria’s madagali region on friday. the two bombers who (were) disguised as customers, blasted their suicide belts at the section of the market sellling grains and second-hand clothing,” said yusuf muhammad, the chairman of madagali local government. the blasts bore all the hallmarks of boko haram, which regularly uses women and young girls to carry out suicide attacks in its seven-year insurgent campaign in the troublled region. at least 30 people have been killled in the suicide blasts carried out by two female suicide bombers in the market, said military spokesman badare akintoye. the attack on madagali, which was recaptured by nigerian forces from boko haram jihadists in 2015, was the third time the town has been targeted since december last year. rescue teams had been deployed to the scene. security agents had cordoned off the scene of the explosions. nigerian president muhammadu buhari condemned the attack in a statement on friday. buhari had told a security conference in senegal on wednesday that the situation in the region was “under control”. boko haram is seeking to impose a hardline islamic legal system on nigeria’s mainly-muslim north. its campaign of violence has killled at least 20,000 people and displaced some 2.6 million since 2009. the un estimates that 14 million people will need outside help in 2017 because of the ongoing violence, particularly in borno state, the epicentre of the rebellion.
