Explosion has hit a pub known as “Gidan Amarya” in Gashua, headquarters of Bade Local Government Area of Yobe State.

Daily Trust reports that one was killed while seven others sustained injuries in the incident.

The Executive Chairman of Bade local government, Sanda Kara Bade, confirmed the incident, adding that security operatives have been dispatched to the scene of the explosion.

While he disclosed that the injured victims were receiving treatment at government facility, he added that investigation had been ordered to unravel the cause of the explosion.

Residents of the area said that a huge reverberating sound was heard across many parts of the town at about 8pm on Sunday.

Abdu Sheriff, a shop owner close to the Area, said many people scampered for safety.

“I heard the sound while we were observing our Isha prayers and immediately we finished, we rushed into our houses to hide.”

“After some moments, we were informed that the explosion hit a beer parlour that is in a neighbouring community.”

It is unclear the group behind the explosion, which happened two days after suspected Boko Haram insurgents slaughtered about 10 persons at ‘Kwari’, a brothel in Geidam Local Government Area of Yobe.

Last week, the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) claimed responsibility for attacks on two bars in Taraba State.

Yobe residents have asked the government to consider banning bars, beer parlours since they are becoming target of attacks.
