Senator Shehu Sani, speaks with an injured victim of the Sabon-Gari Local Government Secretariat bomb blast, on the outskirts of the city of Zaria, in KadunaBy Garba Muhammed KADUNA, Nigeria (Reuters) - Suicide bombers killed around 30 people in two blasts in northern Nigeria on Tuesday, witnesses and a state governor said, the latest attacks in a renewed offensive by suspected Boko Haram insurgents. There were no immediate claims of responsibility for the attacks but they bore hallmarks of the Islamist militant group, which has bombed several towns and cities in northern Nigeria in the last 10 days after months when they were thought to be hiding out in the Sambisa forest. Last week, more than 200 people died in a string of attacks in Africa's top oil producer, piling pressure on new President Muhammadu Buhari who is trying to work with neighbouring states to quell the insurgency.
