A female suicide bomber blew herself at a bus station in the northeast Nigerian city of Damaturu on Sunday, killing herself and seven others.
The attack took place at the Damaturu Central Motor park near the A division police Station that was on January 9th burnt down by the Boko Haram insurgents.
The State Police Public Relation Officer Toyin Gbadegesin said the bomber made several failed attempts to bomb the military outfit inside the park before she boarded a half-loaded Sharon car and blew herself off killing 10 people at the spot.
At about 12.10 hr Hijab wearing female suicide bomber came into the park and went to the security vehicle there and she was turned away after suspecting her movement. She then went to a commercial Sharon vehicle in the car that was half loaded and the bomb exploded.
In the blast 10 people died, 31 are critically injured and are lying at the General Sani Abatcha hospital in Damaturu.
A shop owner told AFP that an angry mob prevented emergency workers from evacuating the remains of the bomber. ”They gathered the pieces (body parts) and set them on fire,” he said.
