“The suicide bomber and three others have been confirmed dead, eight persons are injured and rushed to the Hospital.
“It is instructive to note that the mega station did not go ablaze due to the security barricade put in place by the policemen on duty at the station.
“Security forces have cordoned off the scene and police bomb disposal experts are sweeping the area,” the News Agency of Nigeria quoted the force spokesman as saying in the statement.
