The voting process in at least two areas of Gombe State, North-East Nigeria, has been stalled following an attack by suspected Boko Haram insurgents.

Bloomberg news agency quoted a resident, Aminu Kabiru as saying the suspected terrorists in cars and motorcycles started shooting sporadically in Shole.

In Dukku, also in Gombe state, gunmen at about 11:30 a.m. assaulted the town and burnt a police station, a bank and stopped voters from registering, Haruna Duku, a trader, told Bloomberg.

In both places, voters dispersed.

    Why not say two places in Gombe? Why just say Gombe? Do you guys don’t feel a responsibility to Nigeria? This our country for pete’s sake. Inform people properly.

      There should be laws banning or arresting journalists misinforming the public or passing rumors as news. Enough to “name withheld” or “anonymous sources”.

        This was what decree No.4 was all about and some Nigerians are using it against GMB…Our journalists are part of our problem and they sell their conscience to the highest bidder against their professional code of conduct.


    Is this the picture of some of the rag tag idiots that made our soldiers to run away from the battle field???
    President Jonathan should be asked some questions please.
