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.
