At least four people have died in Potiskum, Yobe State
after a suicide bomber attacked a bus station in the
area.
The attack occurred at about 10:30 am on Sunday,
January 18 and is said to have left about 48 people
injured.
“(The bomber) slowed his car twice… some distance
from the bus station and he suddenly increased speed
and rammed into buses lined up waiting for
passengers,” local trader Umar Sani said.
A police officer reportedly confirmed the attack saying
that four bodies and 48 injured people had been taken
from the scene.
The casualty toll was also confirmed by a nurse at the
Potiskum General Hospital who described the suicide
bomber as a young man.
A market in Potiskum was also bombed last week by
two young women, » one of whom was reportedly only
about 15 years of age.
