Boko Haram terrorists late this afternoon struck again in Borno State, North-East of Nigeria, hitting a bride that links Nigeria and Cameroon, according to a report by the US online paper, SaharaReporters.

“The bombing and destruction of a small bridge linking Nigeria to Cameroon in Borno State today has caused mass destruction and confusion,” the report said. “The bombing occurred on the outskirts of Gamboru Ngala, site of a Monday Boko Haram attack that claimed the lives of over 300 village residents,” it added.

At least 30 people were reportedly killed in the attack, the report said, adding that the bombed bridge links the immigration check points of both Cameroon and Nigeria.

“The bombing event took place on the same day of a mass burial in the town of Gamboru Ngala,” the report said. “It was there on Monday where a Boko Haram-led raid on the small village claimed the lives of over 300 residents, nearly ten per cent of the population.”
