The peace and tranquillity that has hitherto been enjoyed by the Gombe State capital seems to have become history as the city has been a target of a few attacks lately. The bomb attack that was however far deadlier than what anyone has witnessed in the whole state.

There were multiple explosions in different parts of the city and the bombs kept going off one after the other. More than twenty bombs exploded in the centre of the crowded capital. A gun battle was also reported at a Police Station opposite Bubayero Primary School. People were seen running for cover as gunmen opened fire, shooting indicriminately.

The attack was similar to the one carried out in Kano earlier in the year by the Boko Haram sect. Though the number of

Apart from the police station, a prison facility in the town was also attacked.
