At least 27 people were killed in suicide bombing attacks in Nigeria, Reuters reported citing local media.

Local sources told Reuters that a female suicide bomber blew herself up at a market in the village of Konduga. Two other bombers reported to have attacked a refugee camp located in the area. At least 27 people were killed and some 83 were injured.

Konduga is located in an area where the Boko Haram Islamist group is operating. The media are suggesting that the attackers may be affiliated with a terrorist group.

Boko Haram is a militant organization affiliated with the Daesh terrorist group, outlawed in many countries, including Russia and the United States.

It conducted large-scale attacks in northeastern Nigeria in 2009 and bombed a UN office in Abuja in 2011, killing 21 people. The organization is responsible for thousands of kidnappings in Nigeria, as well as in the neighboring African states, during the years of insurgency to establish an Islamic "caliphate" in the region.
