Kaduna Blast

KANO (NAN) ―No fewer than six persons lost their lives following two explosions which occurred in Kano on Sunday, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

The first blast went off at Kofar Nasarawa, near the North-West University, while the second explosion happened at St. Charles Church on Zungeru Road in Sabon Gari.

The State Police Commissioner, Aderenle Shinaba who confirmed the incident while briefing newsmen in Kano, said 13 other persons sustained injuries.

He said the attack at Kofar Nasarawa was carried out around 12.05 p.m. by a 16-year-old girl suicide bomber who wanted to cross over to the university.

“The girl loaded herself with explosives and her target was the university and in the course of preventing her from going to the university, she detonated the bomb and injured five policemen.

“Five out of the security personnel stationed at the place sustained injuries, while the girl blew herself off instantly,’’ the police commissioner said.

He added that in the case of the second blast at Zungeru road, the bomb was detonated within the vicinity of the church.

Shinaba said this had led to the killing of five persons while eight others were injured.

“The attack, which was carried out around 1.00 p.m., claimed five persons and injured eight persons,’’ he said.

The police official said three suspects, including a cripple, had also been arrested at Sabon Gari while all the injured were now receiving medical attention in the hospital.

He said investigation had already commenced to unravel the circumstances and those behind the attacks.

Meanwhile, security has been beefed up in the affected areas.

      I’ve been saying it since. If and when we find those girls, some of them may have been converted into terrorists if for no other reason than anger that no one came for them for so long.

      It is a very weak Hadith and it is not in the Quran itself. It is apparently what someone says they heard. I’m just saying you shouldn’t use that idea to view all Muslims.

    Incase you have not been watching the news, @edwin chinedu, boko haram atacks public places, not just churches. I sometimes imagine the opposite if we had christians *extremists* who were blowing up mosques and slaughtering muslims for reason of their faith, not because they even offended you. this country will be a war zone! most churches and christians are so selfish chasing money instead of coming together to help fight this issue…..Jesus wont come down to help, we need to make a choice and be selfless. we sit pretty here in the south just hoping it wont get here and throwing parties…..they say what goes around comes around..Lord take control and save your own
