Bomb explosion rocks Gombe Motor Park

Scene of a bomb explosion

Scores of people are feared killed after an explosion ripped through a crowded motor park in Gombe town, Gombe State, residents have said.

A journalist based in the state, Mallam Tildee, told PREMIUM TIMES that the blast occurred at Dukku Motor Park early Monday.

Mr. Tildee said he was on his way to the scene of the blast and would be able to give casualty figure later.
The spokesperson of the police in the state, Fwaje Atajiri, could not be reached for comments.

A similar blast had occurred in November at the Gombe line motor park, killing scores of commuters, drivers and traders.

    Human sacrifice to hijack power from Jonathan

      And some say it’s Jonathan doin it to stop election in the states. Let’s unite to fight terrorism and defend our only country. I see Chad invading Nigeria in my view

      • Otile

        Chad is not invading Nigeria. They are fighting to bring back their people into their fold because they know that far North belongs to them. Nigeria is not a country, it is a continent. Get it.

          You know better than God. Well my purpose is not to decide which land is which,but to do what He placed me where I find myself. Am from Zion. Am so conscious I will return and give account.

    BITTER TRUTHS —Nigeria is NOT a Country. It is a Continent. See details below

    ***Federal High Court puts QUOTA System, FEDERAL Character in jeopardy…The Cable News***

    In a most bizarre of policies found nowhere else in the world except CONTINENT Nigeria, the quota system, an outgrowth of the federal character principle, allows for a wide range of disparate cut-off points for different states of the federation. While candidates in Northern states of Yobe and Zamfara, Kebbi, Sokoto state etc only need to score two (2) points, those from The South, East & West like Anambra need to score 139, Edo & Osun state 127, Imo 138 and Anambra 139 in order to get admitted to the same School. Is this “One Nigeria” ? Are we a country or a continent? I need your answers before close of Business today. See statistics below:

    North (Bokostan)
    Kebbi 9 20
    Sokoto 9 13

    Abuja 90 90
    I live in Austria and it would be madness to have different pass score for Innsbruck, Vienna, Linz or Graz. Nigeria needs a break up! Give the North their country…and let Buhari be their President…and blood of Baboons & Dogs will stop flowing.
