Eye witnesses have confirmed that double explosions have hit Madagali in Adamawa State, with scores feared dead.
The blasts was said to have occurred at a busy market early Friday.
Madagali lies some 276km from the Adamawa State capital, Yola.
The town, which is close to neighbouring Borno State, was one of several held by Boko Haram at the height of the group’s brutal insurgency.
The latest blast is the third in Madagali, following attacks by two female suicide bombers on December 28, 2015, at a busy motor park claiming 30 lives and 16 injured.
However, the cause and casualties of the last explosions were still uncovered as at time of reportage.
