Forty-eight students are dead after a suicide bomber attacked a northern Nigerian high school, but it is not known who is behind the attack.

Officials say the bomber was wearing a school uniform when the explosives were detonated at a morning assembly.

Hospital workers say dozens of students were hurt and will likely need amputations.

Last week a suicide bomber killed 30 people in the same city.

"We suspect Boko Haram is behind the attack," police spokesman Emmanuel Ojukwu said.

CBN News is working to confirm if if Boko Haram is responsible for the bombing. Attacks on schools by the militant Islamic group are common in northern Nigeria.
