Scene of the Kaduna bomb blast

The Police in Damaturu, the Yobe State capital, have confirmed that seven persons were killed on Sunday when a suspected female suicide bomber struck at a busy motor park

The Commissioner of Police, Marcus Danladi, who confirmed the casualty figure said 32 others sustained injuries and were evacuated to the main hospital in the town for treatment.

However, a rescue worker involved in the evacuation of victims of the blast said he counted ten corpses.

The staff, who declined to be quoted because he is not permitted to talk on the matter, also said 56 persons were injured and were taken to the hospital.

The female suicide bomber was reportedly dropped off by a lone male driver at the motor park which is also located near a market.

Suicide attack by young girls have been on the rise, especially in Kano, Borno, Yobe and Gombe states.

Recently, a young girl who failed to detonate her explosive vest in Kano informed the police that she was handed over to members of the Boko Haram sect by her parent for the suicide mission.

    Still wondering why the bombs keep coming? The jobless & irresponsible Terrorist vampire politicians need to explain. Why are the parents of these girls not going public- looking for their children? The reason is simple, the terrorists have the support of the Northern muslims. It might not be all muslims but certainly a quantum of the lot. If it were not so, individuals would have been going public declaring their girls missing.

    This Nigeria no go work. Even the devil knows this fact. So why don’t we share Garri and go our separate ways the way Luggard met us?
    How much long will the South tolerate Northern Nigeria’s terrorists? Will it endure forever? …How much more will innocent Nigerians be bombed to death bcos of the quest for power by some irresponsible deviants? How much long?
