A suspected bomber was on Tuesday, November 18, 2014 set ablaze by a group of angry mob at Gombe Line motor park where no fewer than 30 persons were killed in Gombe state.

Daily Trust learnt that the bomber arrived the park with a sack, but refused to be screened by people at the entrance of the bus  station in Gombe, the capital of Gombe state, North East Nigeria.

He reportedly came into the park forcefully and dropped the wired sack believed to be laden with an Improvised Explosive Device before he tried to flee the place holding a remote control.

It was gathered that the angry mob had stopped him and put tires on him, doused him with petrol and set him on fire.

An eyewitness had allegedly taken the IED to the road in order to reduce the damages it would cost them when it eventually goes off.

The body of the suspect is on currently on fire and  some operatives of the police anti-bomb unit have arrived the scene to restore normalcy.

Below are a photos from the scene:
