In what could be well described as shocking and bizarre, a would be female suicide bomber detonated a bomb carefully tucked inside her Hijab

at Military  Military Quarter Guard along Biu Road in Gombe State, killing herself and a soldier.
This is a follow-up to a previous bomb exploded at the private residence of Gombe state Governor, Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo just three days earlier. gathered that the woman was intercepted by the soldiers at the gate of Military Quarter Guard following an Intel from a reliable source.
Bizarre enough, however, on sensing that her mission was almost abortive, she hugged the soldier and detonated the Improvised explosive device (IED) hidden in her Hijab.
 "I heard a loud sound and then black smoke covering the place . Later we saw soldiers moving bodies," said a near-by Gombe trader.
Other soldiers also sustained various degrees of injuries from the explosion and are receiving treatment at the 301 Military Barracks in Gombe.
The woman was said to have arrived in motor bike circa 11 a.m. pursuant to her heinous mission but met a brickwall when the soldiers resisted her effort to gain entry, consequent upon which she took the hard way out. After which thhe army cordoned the area from the Union Bank round about to Corner Alheri along the Gombe-Bui road.
Two buildings inside the office were destroyed by the blast.
With this development, it seems to suggest that the terrorist group Boko Haram is shifting its attention from the traditional Borno state to Gombe state.
Meanwhile, the incident has been corroborated by the Nigerian army but so far no individual  or group has claimed responsibility for the blast or last week's assaults but all eyes are on the Islamist group Boko Haram that has set off bombs and killed thousands in its five-year-old bid to carve out an Islamist state in the region.
