A watching area in the town of Damaturu, Nigeria was rocked this evening as an explosion went off amidst fans that were present to view the game.
A suicide bomber allegedly detonated a tricycle taxi loaded with explosives at the viewing locale.
Ugh, if that's what happened, that's just sick.
According to a source, there are already many casualties at General Sani Abacha Specialist Hospital nearby!
Witnesses allege there were several pickup trucks that arrived at the hospital in question carrying bodies, and 15 people are reportedly critically injured, but none of that has been confirmed.
We hope those injured or hurt receive the care they deserve during this terrible time!
We'll keep you updated on any new developments in this awful tragedy!
