Female Suicide Bomber Kills 6 In Yobe State

At least six persons have been confirmed dead and 36 others hospitalised after a teenage suicide bomber detonated a bomb at a crowded bus station in Potiskun town of Yobe State yesterday, security sources said.
Mallam Ahmadu Abdullahi, a local vigilante official in Potiskum, said he assisted the security operatives to convey about 36 injured victims to the hospital and helped to evacuate six corpses, including that of the suicide bomber to the Potiskum General Hospital.
He told newsmen on phone that “one of our members actually spotted a boy of about 15 years entering the Potiskum Bus station at about 11 am on Sunday,   but before we could stop and search him, the bomb exploded.
“By the time I left the hospital, six persons were confirmed killed – and that includes the bomber. We have taken 36 seriously injured persons to the Potiskum General hospital; but we doubt if some of them who are in critical conditions could make it. “
Police spokesman in Yobe State, Markus Danladi, confirmed the attack but could not give details on casualties.
