Reports just reaching us indicate that two explosions in Potiskum, Yobe State have claimed the lives of 10 people, causing serious injuries to eight.
It was gathered that vigilantes and security agents were reportedly killed in the explosion this afternoon.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr Toyin Gbadegeshin, confirmed the explosions to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Potiskum.
The attacker, who had been arrested after being suspected of theft, killed eight vigilantes after detonating his explosives.

The other blast killed two more people outside a bar.
However, speaking to This Day, an eyewitness said that the suicide bomber gained access to the office and detonated the Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) killing eight people on the spot including himself.

The eyewitness (Isa) said: ”A young man came to our office and we insisted that anybody that we would allow to enter must be searched and when he pretended to be opening the bag, he detonated an explosive device.”
