Scores of people are feared dead after an explosion on Tuesday rocked a motor park in Jimeta, Yola, the capital of Adamawa State.


The dreaded Islamist sect, Boko Haram is fingered to have carried out the attack using Improvised Explosive Devices, IEDs.


Eyewitnesses said that the motor park came under the attack a few minutes before the close of the day's vegetable market. “I cannot say how many people died in the explosion but human parts littered the place. It happened when traders were closing shop for the day,” a resident, who simply identified himself as Mustapha, said.


Security agents were said to have rushed to the scene to take the injured to the hospital while the dead were taken to mortuaries of some medical facilities in the town.
