Two explosions followed by sporadic gunshot jolted residents of the Zoo road area of Kano city early Wednesday.
Witnesses told PREMIUM TIMES a police post in the area was the target of the attack. Witnesses said two men riding on motorcycle hauled the explosives at the target around the densely populated Zoo road roundabout, injuring many persons.
Casualty rate is still unclear as sporadic gunshots were still heard around the area up till 7:30 a.m. But some residents in the area have since fled for fears of molestation by officers of the Joint Military Task Force, JTF, keeping the peace in the city.
The previous day, an explosion was reported around the same neighbourhood. Zaria Road, a major traffic inflow to the city, was also barricaded by security agents after explosions in a luxurious bus injured four people.
