YOLA:  A bomb blast hit a Nigerian internally displaced persons (IDP)camp on Friday morning on the outskirts of Adamawa state capital Yola in the northeast of the country, a spokesman for the government emergency agency said.

The blast is the first such attack on an IDP camp in Nigeria and went off at a camp at a school in the hamlet of Malkohi, spokesman Manzo Ezekiel of the National Emergency Management Agency said.

The six-year insurgency waged by Islamist jihadi group Boko Haram has displaced about 2.1 million people and killed thousands.
