The suicide bomber detonated the IED, blew up himself, killing some, while 13 others sustained injuries in the explosion, he said.
No less than four persons have been feared killed with 13 others injured in a suicide bomb attack on Thursday at Amarwa community of Konduga Local Government Area of Borno State.

It was gathered that the incident occurred at about 2 p.m. when a male suicide bomber infiltrated the village and detonated an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) strapped to his body.
Speaking with newsmen on the incident, an eyewitness, identified as Bukar Fantai, said that the bomber sneaked into the village disguised as a grain merchant.
Fantai said that the insurgent first approached a shop keeper and offered sorghum for sale thereafter, went to a shade where many villagers gathered for relaxation and detonated the explosive.
“The suicide bomber detonated the IED, blew up himself, killing some, while 13 others sustained injuries in the explosion,” he said.
A competent security source confirmed the attack, saying that the wounded persons were referred to the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital (UMTH) for treatment.
The source said that Police EOD and patrol teams had been deployed to sanitise the scene of the attack, adding that normalcy had been restored to the area.
Meanwhile, the State Police and Military authorities are yet to comment on the incident.
