The Yobe State Police Command on Wednesday in Damaturu confirmed Tuesday’s bomb attacks in Potiskum.
News Agency of Nigeria reports that bombs planted in two mosques had exploded at about 7.30 pm on Tuesday when Muslims in the area were preparing for the evening prayers.
The command’s Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Nansak Chewang, told the News Agency of Nigeria the police were however working on the details to know exactly those involved.
“We are still working on the details to get the authentic figures of casualties in the bomb attacks in Potiskum,’’ he said.
The police did not give if there were casualties in the blasts.
A yet-to-be-identified number of residents might have died in the explosions, which were said to have gone off in a “busy area” of Potiskum on Tuesday.

The terrorists reportedly blew off a bridge linking Damaturu, the state capital, through Birni Yadi with Borno and Adamawa states.
