Tragedy was averted yesterday in Gombe when a suspected suicide bomber was apprehended and burnt alive. This happened in Gombe line motor park where the attacker went to drop a sack ridden with improvised devices. Eyewitness reports indicated the bomber successfully entered the park, dropped the sack and tried to make his way out with the remote control to detonate the bomb.
He was however spotted by some smart vigilant members of the park who chased and arrested him. He was thoroughly beaten and set ablaze, averting what would have been a bloody afternoon in Billiri, Gombe State.
Media Aide to Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, Imam Imam today tweeted a photo of the suicide bomber who was said to have dressed as a woman to facilitate his entry to the guarded park. Here is the Tweet and a photo below:
