At least four people have died in Potiskum, Yobe State after a suicide bomber attacked a bus station in the area.

The attack occurred at about 10:30 am on Sunday, January 18 and is said to have left about 48 people injured.

“(The bomber) slowed his car twice… some distance from the bus station‎ and he suddenly increased speed and rammed into buses lined up waiting for passengers,” local trader Umar Sani said.

A police officer reportedly confirmed the attack saying that four bodies and 48 injured people had been taken from the scene.

The casualty toll was also confirmed by a nurse at the Potiskum General Hospital who described the suicide bomber as a young man.

A market in Potiskum was also bombed last week by two young women, one of whom was reportedly only about 15 years of age.
