A blast struck a stadium in northeastern Nigerian town of Gombe where President Goodluck Jonathan campaigned earlier on Monday, a government spokesman said.
The explosion occurred after Jonathan and his staff left the town, spokesman Mike Omeri told reporters in Abuja, the capital of Africa’s most populous country.

The bomb exploded about 200 metres (220 yards) from the stadium, engulfing the car in flames and killing at least one bystander and wounding seven.

“Casualty figures are still being ascertained,” Omeri said. In a presidential vote set for Feb. 14, Jonathan, 57, is facing a tight race against his main challenger, Muhammadu Buhari, 72. Both have 42 percent support among likely voters, according to an Afrobarometer poll released Jan. 27.
The Islamist militant group, Boko Haram, has killed thousands of people in the mainly Muslim north in its six-year campaign to impose Islamic law, or Shariah, on Nigeria. It has repeatedly said Jonathan’s government is illegitimate.
The International Criminal Court said Monday it will send a team to Nigeria to discourage political violence.
