Bomb Explosion In Taraba State This Morning. 10 Confirmed Dead


An explosion has been reported in
Jalingo, capital of Taraba State. The
incident occurred near government
offices in the city. Parts of the finance
ministry were affected by the
explosion.

The explosion which occurred about 9
a.m. appeared to have been targeted at
the convoy of the state's Commissioner
of Police. Ibiang Mbasike, the
spokesperson for the Police in Taraba
has confirmed the attacks.

Three police officers are reported to
have died in the explosion, which
happened barely 24 hours after another
bomb blast in Bayero University Kano.

Many have been seriously injured as the
attacks come during the early morning
rush hour.
It is unclear if the Commissioner of
Police, Usman Gwary, was killed in the
blasts, but the suicide bomber, a
dispatch rider and at least eight others
have been confirmed dead.

Meanwhile another bomb was this
morning detected and successfully
defused in Yola, the capital of
neighbouring Adamawa state while
reports reaching us indicate that there
may have been at least two other bomb
blasts, one in Gombe, the capital of
Gombe state, the other in Maiduguri, the
Borno state capital.
