Gombe bus station blast ‘kills 23’

FILE PHOTO: An attack on Gombe motor park in October 2014

A deadly explosion that ripped through a bus station in central Gombe Friday, killed at least 23 people and injured many more, the News Agency of Nigeria, has reported.

NAN quoted a hospital source as stating that at least 23 bodies were deposited at Gombe Specialist Hospital, while the injured were taken to other hospitals for treatment.

Police did not confirm the casualty figures, but the state police chief said three men suspected of planting the explosives as commuters gathered at the car park, were arrested.

The State Commissioner of Police, Kudu Nma, told journalists in Gombe that a vehicle with an inscription “Yobe Line” was suspected to have brought the alleged bombers to the park.

“A vehicle which was suspected to have carried the bombers who came in with Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) was recovered,” he said. “Unfortunately for them, they were caught when they were about to run away,” he said.

The explosion occurred at about 9.30 a.m. Friday at the busy Gombe Line Transport Services Limited.

Witnesses said there was pandemonium around the area immediately after the blast as hundreds of youth from different directions stormed the park throwing stones at security personnel and other rescue workers who were evacuating corpses and the injured.

The security operatives shot into the air to disperse the rampaging youths, they said.

Bags of Explosives

Abdulrahman Suae, a resident of the area, said he saw about five people evacuated to the hospital but could not confirm whether they were dead or injured.

Mr. Suae said he later visited one of the hospitals where he counted 10 dead bodies and many other wounded, among them women and school children.

Mr. Suae, who was at the scene of the attack but escaped unhurt, said three young men arrived at the station with bags full of explosives, unknown to commuters.

He said after the suspects delivered their “luggage”, they hurriedly left the bus and walked towards the entrance to the park.

“Before they could get out of the park the bomb had gone off and some people around the gate of the park noticed them and ran after them,” Mr. Suae said.

He said although police made some arrests, he could not categorically say if those arrested were the real suspects or not.

Audu Awwal, a Gombe line bus driver who narrowly escaped the blast, said he only just left the park to see a friend off at the gate when he heard the explosion.

“I couldn’t believe it when I heard the explosion, because I was just seeing a friend off when I had the explosion.”

Mr. Audu said he helped in moving victims out of the park and said at least 20 people died.

    Hmmmmmm this is to alert the government that the so called negotiation is just a plot to buy time by the insurgents who had been dealt a big blow by the killing of Abu Shekau. The plan is to use the lull period to regroup, re-equipped, re-strategize and relaunch. Terrorists don’t negotiate only militants agitating for redress understand that language. Boko haram has no sane or clear demands other than the desire to force people to become Muslims.

    Nigeria is on fire, our president is collecting form for reelection.

  • Chukwuma

    My People:

    This Jihad thing is coming fast towards Lagos. It has reached Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states. Many towns there are now under the control of these terrible Muslim Jihadists, including Mubi town which fell two days ago. Now the Muslim Jihad is coming southwards to Gombe and from there to Abuja and Lokoja.

    In no time Lagos, Ibadan, Owerri, Nsukka, Benin, Port-Harcourt, and Calabar will be within the Jihadists’ reach.

    To be forewarned is to be forearmed. I read elsewhere in Premium Times that folks are now holding Lagos civil rights and human rights activists responsible for misleading southern people to let down their guards on a very false assurance that southern Nigeria is immune to Islamic Jihad. I agree with that criticism. The civil rights activists in Lagos got it all wrong. They now have a war of genocide approaching the gates of southern cities as the consequence of their civil rights folly.

    • Jahman

      But wait first. Did civil rights activists ever condemn Islamism, true, true?
      I am not aware that these Nigerian activists ever condemned Islamism.
      So, they are part of the problem now, no be so? They are default enablers.
      They can’t plead any innocence now unless they can plead ignorance too.
      Truth is that these civil rights activists let themselves down on Islamism.
      Whether it is for greed or dishonesty the effect is that they’ve forfeited trust.

      • Bode Asalu

        @ Jahman

        Of course, human rights activists didn’t condemn Islamism as a syndrome – but rather foolishly picked and chose aspects of Islamism to criticize without ever looking at the big picture. Someone like Professor Wole Soyinka found it easier to call out Boko Haram as violators of civil liberties but never connected the dots to his beloved ACN/APC as a side of the same coin. That’s why Yorubaland is now the easiest pick for Boko Haram.

      It is a legal responsibility which God has given us, within the context of one Nigeria,

      to continue to uphold the practice of Sharia; wholeheartedly. What remains for
      Muslims in Nigeria is for them to re-double their efforts and educate Muslims

      Me i can’t shout, please! All i want to say is that people like Professor Itse Sagay, Professor Wole Soyinka, Barrister Femi Falana and so on, must not run away. Were they not the ones saying an Islamist party is a progressive party? No NADECO route is acceptable this time. They must stay here and fight with guns against the same Islamism they supported. They must not run away. They must face the consequence of the bad advice they gave the people.

  • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

    In as much as the entire blame for this insurgence lies in the court of those born-to-rule who exploit Islamic terrorists in order to claw their way back to Aso-rock, one must accept that the serial failure of the Presidents Fulani dominated security team is no more acceptable.
    THE PRESIDENT MUST AS A MATTER OF URGENCY CHANGE HIS SECURITY TEAM….NIGERIANS HAVE HAD ENOUGH AND THERE IS NO REASON TO BELIEVE THAT A CEASE-FIRE IS IN PLACE. TOWNS ARE BEEN ATTACKED,GIRLS ARE GETTING ABDUCTED AND THE AIR-FORCE IS BOMBING MUBI AS WE SPEAK…..THIS HARDLY LOOKS OR SOUNDS LIKE A CEASE-FIRE,IT IS TIME FOR THE PRESIDENT TO ADDRESS THE COUNTRY AND REVOKE THE PHANTOM “CEASE-FIRE”!!

      AS ISLAMISM GOES MARCHING ON IN NIGERIA………

      “The [Boko Haram] fighters, who have been working to carve out an Islamic state in the region, seized control of the northeast Nigerian town of Mubi on Wednesday and Thursday, robbing banks, burning down houses, killing dozens of people and forcing thousands to flee, witnesses said. Men were seen hoisting their black flag over the palace of the traditional ruler in Mubi, the witnesses said. One person told Reuters they saw fighters from the group kill a university lecturer and his entire family.”

        Boko Haram is the militant wing of Islamism….. APC is the political wing.
        Both APC and Boko Haram are joined in the hip on murderous Islamism.
        There’s no clear-cut difference between APC and Boko Haram – none!
        They both exist to either kill or exclude all Christians from governance.
        The gross failure by civil rights activists to see this nexus is a disgrace.

    ‘Fulani Herdsmen, Others Donate N98.1m For Jonathan’s Form’

    By George Agba — Oct 30, 2014 |
    41 Comments

    President Goodluck Jonathan will
    today pick the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) nomination form for the
    2015 presidential election.

    This is even as he has realised of
    N98.165million as donations made to him by both corporate and individual
    donors to enable him pay the required N22 million for the PDP
    presidential nomination fee and expression of interest form.

    While
    Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, the national body of Fulani herdsmen,
    donated the sum of N5million, with other groups like National
    Association of Widows donating hundreds of thousands of naira, the PDP
    Governors’ Forum and the Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria (TAN)
    donated the highest amount of N22million each.

    Special adviser to
    the president on media and publicity, Dr Reuben Abati, who stated this
    while briefing State House correspondents, said the president thanked
    all Nigerians, including members of the PDP, his friends, associates,
    and all other groups who out of appreciation of the achievements of his
    administration in the last four years, had been urging him to seek a
    second term in office.

    Abati said, “The president is also grateful
    to all the persons, groups and communities that have sent donations and
    made pledges to assist him to pay the required N22million for the PDP
    Presidential Nomination Fee and Expression of Interest Form”.

    Notingthat Jonathan acknowledged and accepted with immense gratitude, the
    token of those who donated, Abati gave the list of donors and the amount
    they donated as follows: Mr Kennedy Ikenna Odoeme N5, 000, Mr Ezemagu
    Sunday Nnamdi N10, 000, PDP Governors –N22million, Transformation
    Ambassadors of Nigeria (TAN) – N22million, Ogbia LGA Stakeholders,
    Bayelsa State – N5million and Otuoke Community Stakeholders – N2million.

    Others
    include Brass LGA Stakeholders, Bayelsa State – N50, 000, Bayelsa State
    PDP Stakeholders- N5million, Northern Youths Forum – N2million, Central
    Market Traders Union, Kaduna State – N1million, among others.

          Well, I still maintain it’s still a silly and deceitful analogy regardless of what your co-conspirator thinks! There are loads of informations this government is hiding from Nigerians. Who did they negotiate with regarding the missing Chibok girls? Why did the obesely CDS ordered cease fire? Why has no one been arrested since the break down of cease fire? Why is the government still insisting that this new onslaught is by thugs? Why are the missing girls still in captivity despite the promised release?
          What is the reason of these new mayhem and sudden incapacity of the soldiers?
          Why is there no single statements from GEJ since then, except politicking and dancing around, hey?
          You better wake up to this government antics, every every is shrouded in secrecy. At least, we deserve to know what went wrong in the release of the girls and at least to prepare the people residing in this areas for possible reprisal attacks.
          Useless sets of ‘sheople’, never see their kinds before. Pathetic!

  • The Silent W1

    GEJ should bury his head in shame. He needs to tell us who he negotiated with as it all appears to be a con. He is too concerned about his re-election to care about Nigerians. That’s why despite these bombings his main priority was to attend Island Club in Lagos today to give a lecture. Shame on him.

    Maybe our “PHD” President had a premonition about this event, that is why he was plotting to reconvene the House(remeber separation of power doctrine?) to deal with the bombing when it happened. I must admit I have never seen anything like this man from Otuoke, he has no honor(went back on his word to not run in 2015), is a common thief($20billion non remittance, et al), is duplicitous, has no respect for his fellow citizens, and worst of all has no RESPECT for Nigeria.

          @ No Comment:

          So you can now see why Islamism is banned in Saudi Arabia – the spiritual headquarters of global Islam, and, also banned in Egypt – the intellectual capital of global Islam? It is because enlightened

          Muslims recognize Islamism as the most dangerous ideology in world history for straddling genocide.

          But, alas, Nigerian Muslims, far less educated and far less enlightened, hoist this same pernicious Islamism as standard-bearers, with the suicidal Christian community in Nigeria doing nothing to stop it, but looking on – as genocide enters all Christian neighborhoods with devastating consequences and massive blood-letting.

          • Biodun Irele

            Invitro,

            Nigerian Muslims are not it. Forget them. No enlightened Muslims exist in Nigeria.
            Saudi Arabians and Egyptians are the more intellectually rooted Muslim countries.
            Nigerian Muslims are too local and too illiterate to make complete sense of the Koran.
            Islam in the hands of illiterate Muslims in Nigeria is a sure-fire recipe for mass murder.

        “Any little child in any other part of Nigeria knows there’s an on-going Islamic Jihad in Nigeria.
        The only group of people who do NOT know this simple fact are Yoruba Christians in the South-West

    Muslims must stop this Sharia killing of non-Muslims. Gombe is a Sharia State. Why did Muslims in Northern Nigeria adopt Sharia law? What is wrong with Nigeria law? Sharia is a mechanism meant to eliminate non-Muslims.

    Do not vote for Buhari, he will finalize the pogrom of non-Muslims systematically(if elected). Non-Muslims are threat to Sharia, thus must be eliminated by Muslim Ummah.

    What are Muslims doing to rescue Chibok girls from their fellow Muslim brothers(Boko-Haram)?

    Death to Jihadist and their sympathizers..
