“So far we have recorded 32 dead bodies and 80 others sustained injuries,” Confirmed Saad Bello, the coordinator of the relief organization of Adamawa state on Wednesday.
Terror struck in the fruit and vegetable market stop and trucks near Jimeta area of the state capital Yola, around 8 p.m. on Tuesday. The authorities suspect the Nigeria bombing blasts were the work of the Boko Haram, the Islam militant group leader who has killed over ten thousand people since he unleashed his violent campaign in 2009 to impose Shariath Law on the masses of the nation.
Facebook Inc activated its safety check after the carnage in Nigeria. This follows criticism that social media has been selective in deploying the feature. The feature allows the users to mark their safety status after any natural disaster. Till date, the feature wasn’t deployed in case of bombing or terror attacks.
Mark Zuckerberg in a recent post mentioned Facebook has considered to deploy the feature following the deep impact of the Paris attacks.
“A loss of human life anywhere is a tragedy, and we’re committed to doing our part to help people in more of these situations.” Zuckerberg revealed.
