Two suspects have been arrested by the Nigerian military over the bombing at the Gombe Line Motor Park in November, 2014.
The suspects, the military said, were arrested after a shootout with some troops in Gombe on Sunday.
“The two suspected high profile terrorists were eventually arrested following surveillance and intelligence operations that tracked them to a check point at Bajoga in the state,” Defence spokesperson, Chris Olukolade said in a statement.
Mr. Olukolade said one of the suspects was wounded during the shootout and was being treated at a military medical centre.
He said interrogation of the suspects was also ongoing.
