Reports coming in from Gombe indicate that two people have died after a female suicide bomber detonated a bomb along Biu Road.
According to TheCable sources: “The explosion occurred at about 11am along Military Quarter Guard, along Biu Road in Gombe.
“The woman had the explosive in her bag, but the thing went off prematurely. She was scattered by the explosion. Unluckily, she got a soldier as well.”
There are indications that the bomb had gone off prematurely as chances were high that the military quarters was her ultimate target.
There was an explosion three days ago targeted at the Gombe Government House but official reports say the incident was as a result of an “accidental discharge” in the Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) stationed in front of Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo’s residence.
There is no official statement yet on this explosion but we shall bring you more details as soon as we get them.
