Boko Haram Attacks Adamawa Brothel Bella Naija

The Gombe Governor’s House was attacked late this afternoon. “Massive explosions” rocked the building according to Sahara Reporters.

At this time, there are no confirmed reports of injuries or death.

So far no group has claimed responsibility. Police, fire department and military officials are currently at the scene of the blast.

Eyewitnesses say it was a bomb blast that could be heard all over the city.

Update:

Two soldiers were killed in the bomb blast, and six were injured.

The soldiers were reportedly on guard, manning an armoured tank permanently stationed by the gate of the governor’s house for security, Vanguard reports. 

The cause of the explosion is still unclear. Some reports state that it was an attack, while others say it was an accidental discharge that caused the explosion. 

For instance, it has been reported that the explosion was caused when a pick-up truck loaded with grain bags exploded, near the home of the Gombe State Governor.

Another account states that excessive heat, prompted some explosives in the armoured tank to explode.

Others say that Police Armoured Personnel Carrier that was stationed in front of Dakwambo’s house was “the target of the blast,” suggesting that it was indeed a deliberate attack.

    This is becoming very scary. I wonder when the FG will really become serious about this people and stop blaming it on people who don’t want GEJ to win election according to Doyin Okupe. Things are rapidly spiraling out of control

    This is unfortunate, but I have to say that if there is anyone that deserves to be killed by Boko Harram it is our leaders, at least maybe they will see that they too are at risk and do something about the matter.

    Thank goodness for changing oil markets. Finally, US has stopped buying Nigerian oil. God is finally answering the prayers of the Niger Delta. I hope that it stops completely so that Boko Haram and others can focus their attention on the ill gotten oil wealth of their countrymen.Phew!!

    We should start now to seek a political solution to this problem that is causing this bombings. GEJ should as a matter of urgency, dissolve the on-going national conference and in its place organize a Sovereign national conference whose delegates must be elected by the people(constituencies) to deliberate on how to peacefully separate this country into six independent nations. This is the only way forward. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Now that it’s established that the rich also CRY, I hope a lasting solution to this BH madness is near. I believe in Unity and pray for the Peace of this Nation irrespective of our Leaders’ show of shame, recklessness and irresponsiveness.
