Fresh Taraba bomb blast claims one life,five other children injured

Posted: October 6, 2012 in Security

Less than a week after a bomb blast rocked a drinking joint in Taraba State, leaving one person dead with several others injured, another bomb blast has rocked the capital of the state.
The blast, which occurred in Mallam Joda area of the state capital on Friday night near the Nigerian Television Authority station has left at least one woman dead and five children injured.
The spokesman for the National Emergency Management Agency, Yushau Shuaibu, has also confirmed the incident, saying the injured children have been taken to the Federal Medical Centre, Jalingo for treatment.
Whoever it is that is responsible for these bombings and killings all over the country is trying to pass a message across. The government on their own part have continuously assured Nigerians that they are on top of the situation. But the plain truth remains that the bombing and killings keep coming and the spate of bomb attacks in Northern Nigeria believed to be the handiwork of extremists has risen in recent weeks, even as security agents continue with raids on suspected bomb factories.
