There was pandemonium on Sunday in Bade Local Government Area of Yobe State, as a heavy explosion rocked Gashu’a town, which is the home town of the president of the Nigerian Senate.
Reports says the incident happened at a drinking joint in the town while Muslim faithfuls were observing their evening prayers.
The incident was said to have left one person dead and several others, terribly injured, of which they were rushed to a specialist hospital in the town.
A source who spoke to Daily Post said, “we were observing the late evening prayer at 8pm and all of a sudden, we heard a loud explosion and after the prayer, we were told that it was a suspected IED that exploded in the Abasha area”.
As at the time of this report, no group has claimed responsibility of the incident.
Recall that last week, Boko Haram terrorists infiltrated Geidam town in the night, where they killed about eleven people.
