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.

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