At least eight people were killed Tuesday when a suicide bomber blew himself up outside a livestock market in northeast Nigeria, a local lawmaker and a resident told AFP.

State assembly lawmaker Jerry Kundusi and witness Abdullah Musa reportedly said the blast happened at about 1:15 p.m. in the village of Garkida in Adamawa state.

"We don't know the identity of the assailant but it's obvious it's the work of Boko Haram insurgents," said Kundusi.
