Another Bomb blast Just Occured in Kano, this morning.

Read press statement from Nigeria Police Force…

Today, 28-07-14 at about 10:00am, another
suicide bomb went off at Nigerian National
Petroleum Corporation NNPC Mega Filling Station
at Hotoro Quarter along Maiduguri Road, Kano. A
suicide bomber suspected to be a female had
slipped into the crowd of citizens buying kerosene at the Station before detonating the
explosives. The suicide bomber and three others
have been confirmed dead, eight persons are
injured and rushed to the Hospital.
It is instructive to note that the Mega Station did
not go ablaze due to the security barricade put in place by the Policemen on duty at the station.
Such a situation would have clearly complicated
the Emergency response.
Security Forces have cordoned off the scene, and
Police Bomb Disposal Experts are “sweeping” the
area. Citizens are advised to stay off the scene, be vigilant and report any suspicious person(s) or
activities to security forces. Full scale investigation
has commenced, intensive patrol of the city is
ongoing. ACP FRANK MBA FORCE PUBLIC RELATIONS OFFICER,
