Atleast 40 people have died this evening when three explosions rocked Gombe, the capital of Gombe state, just a week after twin blasts killed 50 people at the city’s central market.
According to reports, today’s casualty figure is expected to be high, but AFP already reports that atleast 40 have been confirmed dead.
The first two explosions occurred at a busy motor park. The blasts, suspected to be from Improvised Explosive Devices worn by suicide bombers, occurred at about 7p.m. The explosions took place minutes apart inside Dadin Kowa motor park. The third blast occurred nearly two hours after the first attacks.
