Kano comes under Suicide bombing attack once again

It hasn’t been two complete weeks since the Kano Central Mosque was attacked by suicide bombers and yet again the city of Kano is under the threat of suicide bombing. On Wednesday, 2 female suicide bombers detonated bombs at a place known as the “fillin parking” which leads onto the Kantin Kwari Textile Market in Kano. This attack took 6 lives and, at the same time, 7 people were injured.

According to Mr Aderenle Shinaba, the Commissioner of the Kano State Police, the unfortunate incident took place at around 3.30p.m when 2 suspected female bombers, dressed in hijab, tried to enter the Access Bank premises but were prevented from doing so by the security men. The bombers, then, made towards the market, enquired about public utility and detonated the bombs immediately in succession.

He added that the police ordinance unit has been entrusted with the responsibility to ensure that there are no hidden explosives in the market. However, an eyewitness recalls that there were large number of dead bodies when they rushed to the scene for the victims’ rescue, as directed by the market leaders.

A joint initiative was taken, by the Nigeria Police and the Abam Security and Safety Limited, keeping in mind the recent incidences of terror attacks, to educate the marketers in strengthening the security strategy.
