Massive explosions averted in Bayero University, Kano, two bombs demobilised

What could have been a major disaster has just been averted at Bayero University. Two locally-made bombs were discovered at the faculties of law and sciences of the university.

The bombs were discovered by the university security team who promptly called in the police.

The Kano State Commissioner of Police, Ibrahim Idris, confirmed the incident, saying the bombs have been demobilised and that his team was in the process of destroying the explosives.

Mr. Idris said the police was yet to establish who planted the bombs.

The incident is coming barely a week after worshippers on Sunday services were attacked by unknown gunmen suspected to be members of the dreaded Boko Haram sects, killing over 15 and wounding several others.

Residents later reported a loud explosion from the direction of the Federal College of Education, Kano, with some scampering for safety. The college is close to the university.

We are unable to ascertain whether or  not the explosion was as a result of the police trying to demobilised the explosives found in the university.

    Don’t be deceived!!!!!! Boko Haram violence and terrorism has nothing to do with PDP members. I have observed attempts locally and internationally to send the President the wrong way on what Boko Haram is all about, who is behind Boko haram, and what Boko Haram wants. These attempts are nothing but lies and deceits that are consistent with the lifestyle and religion of the arrogant sponsors and owners of Boko Haram. They lie and deceive that Boko Haram is about politics, poverty, lack of development and the self inflicted economic situation in the Northern Muslim Hausa-Fulani States. Some in the United States White House even want the President to create a Ministry of Northern Affairs. They couldn’t be further from the truth in their hypocritical understanding of what Boko Haram wants. The truth is that what Boko Haram wants and they want it badly is clearly documented in their working action-paper popularly called the ABUJA DECLARATION. Please see . There is nothing political about Boko Haram whose sole mission is the use of violent means to Islamize Nigeria. Boko Haram is not a recent phenomenon in Northern Nigeria. It predates PDP. It has always been there, vigorously pursuing the Islamization of Nigeria. The only new development is that they have upped the level of violence deployed to achieve their objectives. Their motivation for raising the level of violence is not related to domestic economic and political matters; rather, it is motivated by the recent and on-going escalation of world-wide Islamic terrorism. So please leave PDP alone and out of it. Just face the bitter truth.
