Three blasts killed scores of Muslim worshippers during the festival of Eid al Fitr on Friday in Nigeria's Yobe state. 

Female suicide bombers reportedly blew themselves up at a praying ground and near a mosque as Muslims gathered for morning prayers on the occasion of Eid al Fitr in the town of Damaturu in Yobe, Nigeria's Daily Post reported. 

While the toll is still not clear, the Daily Post said 'scores' were killed, and the BBC reported the Nigerian Army saying that 'at least nine' were killed.

Medical officials told AFP that 13 bodies had been taken to the hospital. 

"I was sitting down when I heard two bomb blasts. I saw the bodies of five people and many were injured," Muhammad Adamu, a worshipper at the site of the blast, told Reuters. 

No group is said to have claimed responsibility for the latest blasts to hit Nigeria, but Boko Haram is usually blamed for such attacks. 

The blasts come a day after at least 50 people were killed in twin blasts in Nigeria's Gombe city on Thursday.
