13 killed by suicide bomb attack in Nigeria
25 February 2015, Nirapad News: More than a dozen people was killed by suicide bomb attack at a crowded bus station in Potiskum, north-eastern Nigeria. A witness told the press that a bomber tried to board a bus as transport officials were loading it.
Hospital sources say 13 corpses have been taken to the town’s mortuary and more than 30 people have been injured. It is the second attack on Potiskum in recent days. Both have been blamed on the militant group Boko Haram.
The Kano-bound bus was completely destroyed and other vehicles at the Dan-Borno bus station were also affected in Tuesday’s explosion. Although no group has claimed responsibility for the latest attack, Boko Haram has stepped up suicide bombings against civilians in recent months.
