A bomb explosion has occurred in Kaduna metropolis, killing four people, in what suggests a fresh wave of attacks on the north’s political capital.

A witness told PREMIUM TIMES that the explosion occurred along the busy Ali Akilu road in the city centre.

The explosive device, a security source said, exploded accidentally in the hands of two men, who were travelling with it on two motorcycles.

The men are believed to be members of the extremist Boko Haram sect.

A loud bang rang out after the explosive went off, shaking buildings around the area.

Several people around the explosion were also affected  by the blast, and the casualty figure from the incident may  rise, our sources say.

Men of the Joint Task Force, JTF, have arrived the area and have cordoned off the scene.

Spokespersons of the police and the JTF could not be reached yet for comments.
