No fewer than 15 persons were killed in Potiskum, Yobe, Northeastern state on Tuesday when a suicide bomber again attacked the Tashar Dan-Borno motor park, where it blew himself up.

Sources in Damaturu, the State capital, said the explosion occurred around 11.00 am, when a male suicide bomber boarded a passenger bus and waited for more passengers to come on board, after which he detonated the explosives.

Several others were said to have sustained injuries due to the eruption with many already receiving treatment at the hospitals in the town.

It is the third explosion in the town in the month of February.

It would be recalled that a bomb explosion rocked Potiskum on February 1, killing 6 while another one occurred last Sunday in which at least 5 persons lost their lives, with about 50 others injured in the attack, when a teenage female suicide bomber, stormed a popular GSM market in the same town.
