While we were celebrating and thanking God for seeing the end of 2014 yesterday, there were two explosions that rocked the Northern part of the country- Gombe & Yobe.
The attack in Gombe was very minimal as a young female wearing a Hijab believed to be a suicide bomber walked towards a military barracks in a very suspecting way. They asked her to stop so she could be searched but she refused and hurriedly moved towards them. The soldiers who wouldn’t take any chance quickly fired at her and lo and behold she exploded and her body parts went into pieces. No other person died, but residents said the explosion was very loud and massive that it shook some buildings in the surroundings.
The second one however took place in Yobe, in a village very close to Potiskum, the commercial capital of northern Yobe state where a bus explosion killed seven people.
