From DESMOND MGBOH, Kano
Another bomb yesterday evening, exploded in the ancient city of Kano, injuring unspecified number of persons and passengers.. Details of the blast were sketchy as at press time but Daily Sun gathered that the incident occurred after two unidentified young men hurled two improvised explosive devices at a luxury bus that was travelling out of the state.
The suspects escaped thereafter before the security could take over the scene of the attack. It was gathered that the blast happened around the popular Zaria Roadabout by Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, Kano area, after the luxury vehicle had come off the round about and was on the Express road driving out of the state.
The blast subsequently resulted into a traffic gridlock on the Expressway as the officers of the Joint Security Task Force (JTF) in the state cordoned off the road forcing the traffic to take to nearby roads to make their transit. Efforts to reach the spokesman of the Joint Security Task Force, Lt. Ikedeche Iweha and the spokesman of the Nigeria Police Force, ASP Magaji Majiya for comments were unsuccessful. Recall that a similar blast occurred on Monday along the famous IBB way in the state capital, injuring a policeman, an FRSC officers and a traffic officer in the employ of the state government
