30 Killed, 89 Injured in Yobe Bomb Attack



Yobe Victims

The Executive Secretary of Yobe Hospitals Management Board, Mamman Mohammed, has confirmed that 119 casualties were reported with 30 deaths in the Monday bomb attack in Potiskum, Yobe.

He told Governor Ibrahim Gaidam, who paid a visit to the victims at the Potiskum General Hospital that some of the victims with severe injuries had been referred to tertiary health institutions in Azare and Nguru.

Gaidam directed  that free treatment be given to the victims, saying “the government will bear all the medical bills of the victims, including those referred to other hospitals outside the state”.

He also condoled with the Shiite group on the death of their members.

Members of the group were presumably attacked by a suicide bomber while on a procession.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    It’s such a pity. While the so called president is out on pilgrimages, campaigning for future elections, and fixing other nations problem so, the barbarism of these demonic savages continues. Have other Nigerians just grown apathetic? I guess it shows by the lack of comments. The whole country should be outraged! Walking the streets demanding his impeachment or that he do something NOW! Anything to make him reprioritize ! This country may be under extremists before Nigerians know it and by then it will be too late . No hashtags here, too distraught :0( (post my lone comment BN)
