The procession was successfully completed successfully in all cities including Potiskum, Yobe State. After the procession there was a bomb blast in the midst of the participants, most of the victims were children participating in the re-enactment of the event of Karbala. As the bomb explodes the Army engaged the surrounding with sporadic shooting with an armored tank.
