Bomb Blast at a Bus Park in Kano Kills 25

Published

 on

Some explosions that hit an inter-state luxurious car park at the Sabongari district of  Kano State this evening has killed about 25 people.

The victims were in a luxurious bus at the area where buses that convey passengers to other states of the country, particularly the southern states, take off from.

A Reuters reporter who was at the scene counted 25 bodies. However, Channels TV reports that 60 people were killed and dozens were injured.

A member of Igbo traditional council in Kano, Tobias Idika, who confirmed the explosion to Channels TV said there were over 200 people in the bus.

IED was kept inside the luxurious bus which was about to leave Kano to Lagos, people were frying like chicken here and you know there are over two hundred people in this bus when the two IEDs exploded,” he was quoted as saying.

The area has now been cordoned off by Military and Policemen.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet.

    Over 200 in a bus? Serious safety issues. What kind of luxurious bus seats or holds over 200 people? May God rest their souls. There is no security anywhere. God help us.

    Another dark day for the country. This goes a long way to show that Badluck Jonathan is losing the country, its unfortunate while he’s busy granting pardons to notable criminals, the terrorist who wants to take over by all means are getting closer to his backyard.

      well, in a land where no one is brought to book, and the oga at the top (seriously, no pun intended with that) appears clueless and absolutely anything goes if u are with the right government – we have the makings of a failed state. it’s only crude oil that’s keeping us afloat right now.

      yet i still hope, for as a colleague said to me in encouragement: because of him, and a few who do their part and stand in the gap, there is hope and Nigeria can be redeemed for her people.

      i only wonder what it will take and what will be left for us to work if ever the opportunity comes in our lifetime.

    Its quite unfortunate that those we believe will save us from the claws of Herods of our days are the ones sponsoring the slavery of no return. May Almighty God deliver us from their snares.

    I think its time to wake up to the reality of the victims of the attack. These are all Christians who are moving from sabon gari to lagos. A christian dominated area of kano, God have mercy. The government is aware of those behind this nonsense yet their save with their families enjoying their loot while others roast. These are all political cohorts who threaten national security at all cost. What a mess, i wish OBJ was the president, this nonsense wouldn’t have happen.

    Let’s talk about issues and leave politics out of it. Jonathan is not the cause of mass murdering in Nigeria. Even when Obasanjo was the president these mass murders have gone on from time to time.There was one ,for instance between 2003 and 2004 in the north.

    Do we live together in Nigeria as one big family or do we happily separate? Enough is enough!

  21. i am ... tired!! lets split up already

    Seriously, the North doesnt contrubute to the growth of nigeria, most proceeds from agricultural farms&mines goes to individual pockets whereas the revenue from oil in the south is being distributed in the whole federation. The North should go&stay alone, u find them in key government positions all the time, kilode?. All the oagatthetop in northern goverment know about this &are sponsoring them

    it breaks my heart… it’s so saddening that our government shows little or no concern for Safety/Security in the Country. But really, what do they (Islamic groups) want?
