Another female suicide bomber strikes in Kano

Kano return

Another female suicide bomber targeting Polytechnic students has struck again in Kano, the spokesperson of the Police in the state, Magaji Majiya, has told PREMIUM TIMES.

Two persons were killed in the incident and at least seven others were injured, the police said.

“A female tenager blew herself up at about 2:30 p.m. and she was targeting the students of Kano State Polytechnic,” he said.

Mr. Majiya said the students targeted were prospective Corps members who had earlier received text messages from the polytechnic’s administration department informing them that their postings to various states for the National Youth Service Corps [NYSC] was out.

The Police spokesperson also said apart from the suicide bomber, two other students  died in the blast while seven others were injured and evacuated to a hospital.

“The area has been cordoned off and investigation has already commenced,” he said.

Wednesday’s attack brings to four the number of suicide bomb attacks in the city involving young female bombers.

Three attempts were earlier made on an NNPC filling station, the North West University, and the Trade Fair Complex in the city on Tuesday.
