BREAKING NEWS! Scores killed in Yobe bombing

Several persons were killed on Monday as suspected suicide bomber detonated bomb just as Muslim brotherhood were on procession.



Earlier reports say the bomber targeted the Muslim brotherhood, adding that the bomber were among the worshippers.

Witnesses said that the Muslim brotherhood, commonly referred to as Shia, were on procession in Potiskum metropolis in observance of the 10th Day of Muharram 1436 celebration when the explosion went off killing many adherents.

It was also gathered that the bomber was among the adherents when the explosion went off around 11:15 on Monday morning

Residents said that several followers of the group, particularly women and children, were killed by the explosion as security forces have presently cleared off the area to prevent further attack.

The Yobe State Commissioner of Police, Mr Markus Danladi, who confirmed the incident, said that the suicide bomber took advantage of the procession to carry out his dastardly act but casualty figure was yet to be known.

“Yes a suicide bomber was among the Shia group and detonated his explosive device, killing members of the group, but I am still on my way to the scene of the incident,” the CP said.

The entire area has presently been condoned off by security men as residents remain in their various locations to avoid being victims of any attack.

Potiskum has been experiencing several bomb attacks with the last one before this occurring two days after the Eid-el Fitr Sallah celebration where worshippers were killed in two separate mosque attacks.
