Flash: Kano Blasts Eyewitness Says More Than 100 Dead (Viewers Discretion Advised For Photos)

An eye witness account of the explosion that rocked Kano on Monday suggest that figures for the dead are well over a hundred.

Danny (as known on Twitter) reports that there were no less than four bomb blasts, adding that “the first and the second were the worst that got people killed and injured”.

The explosions hit a motor park located opposite the Holy Trinity Church, New Road, Sabon Gari area of Kano, which was the loading point for luxury buses that ply routes to and from Lagos and the eastern part of the country.

The station was attacked by the Islamic sect, Boko Haram in January, 2012 in an explosion that left several people wounded.

While some said the latest attack was caused by IEDs kept inside one of the luxurious buses about to leave Kano for Lagos, other account suggest that a vehicle laden with explosives was parked at the bus station.

Danny who was just a street away from the bus park when the first explosion occurred, noted on getting close to the spot that “the casualties can’t be counted” and later added that “over 106 dead bodies (were) recovered”.

In strong terms, he said “(Of the) 3 buses that were fully loaded no one escaped”.

He also observed that only one police vehicle with 5 military personnel was sighted as at the time the second bomb exploded. By now, the area had been thrown into pandemonium with vehicles crashing into whatever stands on their way. The stampede that followed got many people running helter skelter and getting injured in the process of fleeing for safety.

News Bytes had reported that the area has been cordoned off and the dead and injured evacuated.

  1. The people of Kano cannot afford to fold their hands and watch as Kano,(which is the commercial nerve of the entire northern region) be turned into what maiduguri has become today. By targeting easterners,who only came to boost the commercial activities of the state,Boko haram will only achieve making Kano more backward with respect to commercialisation.

  2. This Bokoharam are infidels and hypocrites! Never in islam people are been killed unjustly whether christians or muslims. We muslims should ex-communicate them. I hereby state in strong terms that Bokoharam members are not muslims but purely infidels and terrorist. The general public take note, no more islamist terrorist but infidels or whatever you deem appropriate!

  3. Its just a pity that innocent souls are the casualties of these senseless bombings… Its obvious animals live amongst the people! Western education is abhored yet they use western means to deploy their bombs, crazy if u ask me! But can’t the drone technology of the US be applied? It doesn’t discriminate, after all the lunatics live amongst the people and yet no-one reports suspicious activity! Bottom line, waste the MFs, rather than parading them, they r of no use dwelling with sane people. My heart goes to d various families affected
