Suicide Bomber Strikes In Potiskum

Yesterday a female suicide bomber detonated an explosive device at the Kasuwan Jagwal GSM market in Potiskum, Yobe state, reportedly killing five people leaving well over 40 people injured.

The attack occurred at noon on Sunday and initial reports from some eye witnesses claim that the suicide bomber was a young girl.

It is the second time the GSM market is coming under attack after a similar attack last month. Potiskum is one of the hardest hit areas by the militant group Boko Haram and although they have not claimed responsibility for Sunday’s attack, it is thought to be their handiwork.
