The bodies of 30 people and 67 wounded have been recovered by rescue workers after two women blew themselves up in a market place in the northeastern town of Madagali in Nigeria, Major Badere Akintoe, an army spokesman, said on Friday.

A survivor then said that the twin explosions occurred at opposite ends of the market to maximize damage.

Although no group has claimed responsibility, it is assumed to have been committed by the ISIS-affiliated Boko Haram group as they still maintain a stronghold in the Sambisa Forest, close to Madagali.

Madagali was liberated last year after months in the hands of Boko Haram.
