A suicide bomber has killed over 20 people at a motor park in Potiskum, Yobe State.

An official involved in rescue activities at the scene of the blast also said over 30 others were‎ injured and are still being taken to the hospital.

“The bomber disguised as a traveller going to Kano. He even took his seat inside the car before detonating his ‎explosive-laden vest,” the aid worker said, preferring anonymity because he is not permitted to talk on the matter.

A female suicide bomber had struck Monday at the GSM market in the town killing five person and injuring several others.
