A man suspected to be a suicide bomber has been set
ablaze by an angry mob in Gombe State .
The man was said to have arrived the Gombe Line
Motor Park at about 1pm today, November 18, with a
sack which he dropped after refusing to be searched by
the personnel at the gate.
He then supposedly made an attempt to run away from
the scene but was accosted by the mob. Another report
has it that he was about to blow himself up when he
was spotted.
The crowd then threw tyres and poured petrol on him
before setting him ablaze.
A witness told The Cable:
“One guy entered with a bomb and as he was trying to
connect the bomb, people saw him and got hold of
him.”
The police came to arrest him and they were going to
take him to the station but the people insisted that
they were going to kill him so they gathered tyres and
burnt him alive,” the witness added.
The park was also the scene of an October 31 bombing
which reportedly claimed 30 lives and left many people
injured.
Police officers have reportedly taken the bomb away
from the scene after one of the youths in the area took
it out of the park and onto the main road.
