Bomb Blast Hits Gombe Main Market


Suspected members of the Boko Haram sect struck at the central market in Gombe, capital of Gombe state, around 5pm on Thursday. A resident of the town told Naija247news that the incident happened when people were shopping ahead of the Sallah celebration.

“They planted bombs in a vehicle and another one in a very busy section of the market,” he said.

“The market is one of the biggest in the state and the casualty is certainly going to be high because people were preparing for tomorrow’s Sallah.”
