Bomb Hits Damaturu Again.



An explosion occurred at around 9.30 a.m. today in a busy market in Damaturu, Yobe State, after a female suicide bomber detonated a bomb at the entrance of the ever busy Sunday market.

 Confirming the incident, Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Toyin Gbadegesin, said about fourteen people died in the attack, while 47 others are receiving treatments at the state’s specialist hospital.

 Security operatives are currently at the scene of the explosion and have succeeded in evacuating injured persons.

 Damaturu was last hit last Friday, 17th of July, on a day when Muslims have come to pray and mark the Eid-el-Fitr, at a prayer ground, after a twin blast went off.
