BOMB BLAST IN YOBE INJURES 7
A suicide bomber and a group of men suspected to be Boko Haram members attacked the College of Administrative Studies in Potiskum, Yobe state Friday May 8th.
According to report, the suicide bomber blew himself up at the car park of the college as he made his way into the main campus of the school. Another bomb went off at one of the hostels in the school but no one was injured as all the students were said to have gone out of the hostel for lectures.
The attack in the north-east Nigerian state also left seven persons injured who have been taken to the hopital.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but Boko Haram terrorists have carried out series of similar attacks in the past in the volatile north-east region.
Military assaults against the terrorists have increased after Nigeria postponed its election to enable the military reclaim communities that the Boko Haram terrorists were occupying in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe States. The electoral body said there was need to enable residents take part in the elections held on March 28 and April 11.
The military said it had reclaimed all communities in Yobe State under the control of the Boko Haram sect which had in the last five years tried to establish an Islamic caliphate in the region and also end western education.
