BREAKING: Bomb blast rocks bus station in Bauchi



A large explosion has rocked a bus station in a northern region of Nigeria previously targeted by Boko Haram, witnesses said, in what appeared to be the latest crack in the government’s purported ceasefire with the armed group.

“We had a huge blast at exactly 9:45pm (20:45 GMT)… We realised it had come from the bus station,” said Musa Babale, a resident of the town of Azare in Bauchi state where the blast occurred on Wednesday.

“The whole place was a mess,” he added, in an account supported by several others.

Last Saturday, Nigeria claimed to have reached a deal with the armed rebel group, but continued violence following the agreements raised doubts about the purported breakthrough.
