After three weeks of relative peace in northeast Nigeria, bombers attacked Jambulu in Adamawa state, killing no fewer than 22 people on Tuesday.
More than 60 people were also injured, according to the Adamawa state emergency management agency.
Saad Bello, the director of the agency, said that rescue teams that including the Nigeria Red Cross came in promptly to assist victims.
The attack comes as a presidential deadline to the military to end the jihadist insurgency in north-east Nigeria has less than 50 days to go.
The military had assured the nation that Boko Haram would be wiped out by the end of December as directed by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The toll in Tuesday’s explosions brings to more than 18,500 the number of people who have been killed in terror activities since 2009.
