Gunmen Kill 56 in cattle market in Poyiskum, Yobe state

No comments :
NO fewer than 56 persons were killed, Wednesday night, after gunmen set off explosives and fired on a cattle market in Potiskum, Yobe State. A nurse who received bodies in the local hospital confirmed the casuality figure which he said could be higher.
Yobe State police commissioner, Mr. Moses Namiri, however, put the number of dead at 34.

In his account of the attack, the nurse said: “I have counted 56 bodies at the morgue and I am sure that the death toll could rise in view of the serious nature of injuries sustained. The Potiskum mortuary is made up of a room and a parlour and I counted the 56 in the parlour only. I didn’t go into the inner room.”
