Military Releases Official Statement about the Female Suicide Bomber Attack in Gombe State Yesterday

Troops mounting a security check point at a Barrack entrance in Gombe this morning intercepted a lady suicide bomber while she was attempting to gain entry into the barracks.

The lady suicide bomber who had primed herself with improvised explosive devices concealed under her Hijab was intercepted when troops acting on intelligence report indicating that a terrorist  group was plotting to attack Barracks around Gombe using female suicide bombers, halted her and as she was being searched the bomb detonated killing the lady.

Unfortunately one of the troops conducting the search also died while another was wounded in the explosion. Normal activities have since resumed in the barracks.
