15 people have been confirmed dead in an explosion which occurred on Tuesday, February 24, at the Tashan Dan Borno motor park in Potiskum, Yobe State.

53 people are also said to have been injured in the blast which was caused by a suicide bomber disguised as a commuter.

Witnesses say the bomber dropped from a tricycle opposite the park and entered the location where the explosion eventually occurred.

“He boarded a waiting Toyota bus with registration number Kano XA952DBT like other passengers and few minutes later, a loud sound of explosion from the man,” Ali Zakari, a commercial driver, told Daily Sun.

A source at the Potiskum General Hospital stated that 15 dead bodies were deposited at the hospital’s morgue after the attack.
