Second explosion rocks Kaduna

Kaduna state on map of Nigeria

The second blast targeted the Kawo area of the troubled city.


A second explosion has hit Kaduna town, barely two hours after a blast killed at least 25 people.

A witness said there were many bodies at the scene of the second attack which occurred at the busy Kawo bus stop within central Kaduna.

The first blast targeted at a prominent Islamic cleric, Dahiru Bauchi.

One witness said the second bomb was concealed in a Golf car, just as the first.

“There are also many casualties at the moment and the police have cordoned the area with both rescue team and the police evacuating injured victims,” a witness said.

    “On the day of the bombing of 1 October 2010, I received a call from Mr

    Moses Jituboh, the Head of Personal Security to President Jonathan, who

    solicited my assistance and continued cooperation with President Goodluck

    Jonathan towards shifting blame for the bombings to the North of Nigeria.”
    Tension between the Muslim North and Christian South in Nigeria has been

    running high and I was/am conscious of inflaming an already volatile

    Page 20

    situation still apparent in Nigeria.

    91. Mr Godsday Orubebe informed me that President Goodluck Jonathan was

    disturbed about rumours of me routing for General Babangida from the

    North and wanted me to place an advert in the Nigerian newspapers in

    support of him.

    92. Mr Orubebe further said that President Goodluck Jonathan was upset with

    General Babangida for contesting the election and was going to stop him,

    one way or another.

    93. They intended to use the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission

    (EFCC) to arrest General Babangida on charges relating to an alleged

    embezzlement of public funds during his tenure in office if all attempts to

    discourage him from participating in the elections failed.

    94. Mr Orubebe also explained to me that the North appeared to have lost

    respect for former militia leaders from the Niger Delta that appeared as

    . illiterate thugs going around ministries in Abuja and making threats in the

    bid to secure government contracts. He went on to suggest that since I still

    had credibility and commanded the respect of most fighters, I should appear

    publicly as the leader of these former fighters.

    95. He assured me in this meeting that President Goodluck Jonathan was

    determined to ensure that political power never returned to the North which

    Mr Orubebe described as parasites.

    96. To achieve this, President Goodluck Jonathan would pretend to do only one

    term in office and once entrenched, he would insist on a second term.

    97. Mr Orubebe in that meeting said the North had their chance and they put

    forward a very ill and ailing candidate for President.

    “There is great unease in Nigeria today. There is increasing
    loss of confidence on the part of the majority of Nigerians in the ability of
    the Government to resolve the enormous problems confronting the people as the
    country cascades dangerously towards enormous disaster. These grave challenges
    include pervasive corruption in the Executive, the Legislature and the

    “Time is running out for peaceful well-managed change. In
    order to avoid the horrors of descent into very bloody and destructive anarchy,
    there is immediate need for a revolutionary change. Perhaps, we are expecting
    too much from President Jonathan. For, it may be that he is not, by natural
    disposition, imbued with an ardour to initiate the revolutionary change in the
    purpose, pace and tempo of governance, and that he is not naturally fitted to
    lead the social and ethical revolution that the country so desperately needs to
    take it out of the messy quagmire. If such be the case, should he not make way
    now, or, in 2015 for someone so imbued – since such a revolution is Nigeria’s
    best hope for salvation in the present circumstances?”
