23 July 2015, 19:06

Gombe - Normalcy has returned in Dadin/kowa and Dukku Motor Parks in Gombe after the Wednesday’s twin bomb blast, Police spokesman, DSP Fwaje Atajiri, has said.

Atajiri told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Gombe on Thursday that people now go about their normal activities.

He said that the place was condoned on Wednesday by the security personnel to protect people’s property from being looted by hoodlums.

"You know when things like this happen, is not everybody that goes there to sympathise, some go there with a different mission,’’ he said.
