Multiple blasts in Kano: many feared dead

79

Many are feared dead in multiple blasts that rocked the Sabon Gari area of Kano on Monday. Military spokesman Capt Ikedichi Iweha put the death toll at 12 though some claimed the actual figures may be higher.

Four blasts were reported in the Sabon Gari area, which is full of outdoor bars and eateries and reputed for its bustling night life.

Kano State Police Commissioner Musa Daura reportedly told AFP: “We have had some explosions in Sabon Gari this evening. The explosions happened at open air beer parlours, where people were playing snooker,”

Accusing fingers are pointing at Boko Haram, the outlawed terrorist group, which claimed it is fighting to enthrone an Islamic State in Nigeria.  The sect was also the prime suspect in another coordinated blasts at a bus park in Sabon Gari in March which killed at least 41 people.

  1. What is this world turning into for God sake? I tot Boko Haram were already satisfied with the numbers of lives they’ve sent to their early grave? Why the sudden uproar?

  2. When will the end of all these troubles come… God console the families of those who lost their precious lives in the blast and grant their souls eternal rest.

  3. Day of reckoning comes shortly and every man will be rewarded the same measure inflicted on his neighbour. It is a pity we can’t live as one Nigeria we ought to be.
