At least 30 people were killed in an attack on a wedding convoy in northeastern Nigeria on Saturday, according to a report by the BBC.

The incident happened in the state of Borno, Nigeria's most remote northeastern region on the notorious Bama-Banki highway. The dangerous stretch of road is bordered by a dense forest known as a hideout for the Islamist militant group Boko Haram.

The wedding convoy was ambushed by suspected Islamist militants as it made its way back to the state capital Maiduguri.

The gunmen opened fire, killing dozens, including the groom.

"All the victims were brutally murdered by the attackers," said an anonymous witness cited by the BBC.

"My passengers and I were shocked when we met the dead bodies lying by the highway."

According to the BBC, the fate of the bride and her family members has yet to be determined.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attacks.
