Boko Haram bombs bar & brothel joint in Adamawa state, 60 killed

posted in: News | 0

bombed a bar and brothel located near a major
military base in Mubi, Adamawa State, killing 60
people.
Two security sources in the area told
SaharaReporters that a horrendous
explosion rocked the bar and brothel which
usually teems with civilian and military
patrons. The explosion happened close to 6
pm. Nigerian time, both sources said. One
of our sources said none of the casualties
was a soldier, but the other stated that it
was too early to determine whether any of
the dead were soldiers.
The bombed facility is a short distance away
from the headquarters of the Special
Operations Battalion (SOB) of the Nigerian
army in Mubi. The battalion is at the center
of the Nigerian government’s counter-
offensive against Boko Haram’s increasingly
daring attacks on military and civilian
targets.
Soldiers based in Mubi frequently join
civilians to eat, drink and dance at the
watering hole, our sources said, adding that
military commanders generally warned
soldiers not to stay at the joint past 4 p.m
