The Police says President Jonathan was not the target of the
bomb blast that happened outside the Pantami stadium, venue of the PDP
Presidential rally in Gombe state earlier today. In an interview with
Premium Times, the Gombe state Police command spokesperson, Fwaje
Atajiri, said GEJ had long gone when the female suicide bomber stormed
the road close to the venue of the rally.

“The president was long gone before the blast and if not for media, he
would not (have known of the blast) so he could not have been the
target. The suicide bomber was heading to her target when the bomb she
was carrying went off in an empty place prematurely because of the high
level of security put in place. The suicide bomber and a passerby were
the ‎only casualties, while six persons were injured but not fatally.
