An explosion has ripped through a bus station in Gombe, residents and witnesses have told PREMIUM TIMES.

The explosion, our sources said, happened Friday morning at the popular Gombe Line Transport Services Limited.

Details of the incident are still sketchy, but Abdulrahman Suae, a resident of the area, said he saw about five people being evacuated to the Gombe General Hospital.

He was unable to confirm whether they were dead or injured.

Another witness said the police have cordoned off the area and that emergency officials were rushing injured victims to hospital.
