share on:

A male suicide bomber set off his explosives near a security checkpoint in Gombe, on Tuesday evening.

The huge explosion killed the suicide bomber injuring a young boy standing by the roadside.

“We were inside the mosque praying when we heard a loud explosion,” said Kasuwar Mata resident Badamasi Mustapha.

“When we rushed out we found a motorcycle on fire and dismembered body parts of a man just 100 metres (yards) from the checkpoint.”

Mustapha said residents believed the bomber planned to hit the checkpoint, which is manned by a joint military and police squad fighting the city’s notorious “Kalare” street thugs.

An angry mob gathered the bomber’s scattered body parts, whipped them and set them on fire, witnesses said.
