Nigerian police say Potiskum station bomber a man, not teenage girl

BAUCHI, Nigeria (Reuters) - Nigerian police said a suicide bomber who blew up a bus station in the northeastern town of Potiskum on Tuesday was a man, not a teenage girl as reported by some witnesses.

“There were two young females in his vicinity, which is why some witnesses thought it was a man,” said police spokesman for Yobe state, where Potiskum lies, Gbadegesin Toyin.
