An explosion near a bus station in the northeast Nigerian city of Gombe killed at least five and injured 15 others, witnesses told AFP on Thursday, in an attack that bore the hallmarks of Boko Haram.
"We had an explosion outside the motor park (bus station) this evening around 8:30 pm (1930 GMT) which killed five people and injured 15 others," said Muhammad Garkuwa, a drivers' union official.
"The explosion was from an explosive left by a woman in her handbag beside a bus waiting to convey passengers to Jos," he said in an account supported by a nearby food seller.
