UPDATE: 13 students, 2 attackers dead in Kano College attack — Police

At least 15 people were killed Wednesday after armed men stormed a Federal College in Kano, the state police commissioner said.

The dead include 13 students and two armed attackers. About 47 people were injured, the police said.

Police Commissioner Adenerele Shinaba said the attackers were shot dead by officers during a gun fight.

“What happened was that we detected some suspicious movements of some people and we trailed them only for them to open fire around the school resulting to them gaining entry into the premises and started throwing bombs,” he told journalists at the school.

He said two AK47 rifles have been recovered.

Security has been beefed in Kano metropolis as armed soldiers patrol the streets, manning key locations.

Witnesses had told PREMIUM TIMES earlier that the explosions occurred at about 1.30pm Wednesday, followed by sporadic gunshots.

They said armed men invaded the institution after killing a security personnel at the gate. The attackers later threw improvised explosives at students and shot those who tried to escape.

The area has been deserted as residents and students scampered for safety, our reporter said.

      But oil is now stollen in commercial scale in the Niger Delta- a home region of the president. So if the president can not stop this and all other issues that criples a country, what reason does he have to be there and as well seeking for a re-election?

      All attempts by APC to hoodwink Nigerians that APC is not the founder, sponsor and beneficiary of Boko Haram has continued to fail and will continue to fail woefully.

      The other day APC staged a fake attack on Buhari’s convoy ……. today APC is causing mayhem in Kano with a view to telling Nigerians that since Kano is a so called opposition State …. Nigerians should exonerate APC from Boko Haram attacks ….. they have failed woefully ……. Nigerians know the attacks in Kano are masterminded by Rabiu Kwankwaso, Nasir El Rufai, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi (the Emir of Thieves World-Wide) and quota Dr Junaid Muhammed with the the full knowledge of retired Gen. Muhammadu Buhari and others ….. all of the APC

      • Main Man

        Let me add to your hallucinations: APC also bribed the Australian man to accuse two popular PDP card carrying members( Ihejirika and Sheriff); APC used CAN president’s private jet for money laundering and importation of weapon through illegal means;APC made the President to travel to Chad with a popular boko haram sponsor; APC also advised Jonathan to surround himself with all past and present criminals of our common wealth. The list goes on and on . Surely in a sane climes Jonathan will have been the best candidate to face the opposition. So that they will beat him blue black in a general election.

          Both APC and PDP as well as other Nigerian politicians are all bad and unpatriotic. However, no need to blame anyone for GEJ incompetence and failure. The daft is occupying an office he’s not fit for. Time for him to go drown in Otuoke creek. We need new hands to manage the affairs of this country before shekau take over from Jonathan and kill everyone.

          • Main Man

            But so far so good, no APC member heve been accused so glaringly like we have In PDP. ‘A bird at hand worth millions in the bush’. Let us deal with the PDP hooligans first who have being fingered and wait to indict the APC when ever they are accused.

        Criminals were paid in Niger Delta, it emboldened others to rise. If the Niger Delta vagabonds were locked up forever. It would have served as deterrence to others. Now it’s Boko Haram. Who’s next?

  • By popular demand

    “So then, can Nigerians confidently assume that contrary to General Gowon’s proclamation 44 years ago
    that there was ‘no victor and no vanquished’, it is obvious today that Nigerians not only lost the (Biafra) war,
    they also lost the peace”.

    “Is it of any significance that as a result of those earlier poor quality leaderships after the war,

    Nigerians also lost their sense of unity? It is obvious that Boko Haram wants to promote
    radical Islamism within Nigeria – a radical concept of Islam that is opposed to
    Western values”.

    “Therefore, if President Jonathan’s administration sincerely wants to proffer a lasting solution to the
    menace of the Niger Delta dissidents, the MEND, the MASSOB, the OPC and the
    Boko Haram insurgents, it must clearly recognize when the desire is ripe to
    “let my people go”.

    Their goal is to declare state of emergency in Kano so that election won’t hold in most of the Northern APC states especially judging by what that asshole David Mark just said.

    Think! Y wud Drunkmaster GEJ be insisting on September 22 for the Schools resumption date when there isn’t any provision made for adequate equipments to guard against Ebola? The C.I.A want the spread of EVD to continue. And some educated illiterates still think this is about religion.

    Y wud I make my abode & territory my main target If I was a Boko Haram Sponsor? U think Fashola does not know that the GEJ boyz were behind the Apapa Bombings? By the time Nigeria descends into Chaos & Anarchy proper just like Iraq & Libya in few months, we wud all wake up from our slumber.

    As for Ayo Oritsejafor, GEJ & their fellow conspirators; Well – I can’t prove you are all BH Sponsors. But when I see a bird that quacks like a duck, walks like a duck, has feathers and webbed feet and associates with ducks —I’m certainly going to assume that he is a duck.

    Nigeria is ready to elect any APC Candidate the new president of Nigeria come 2015, to end jona, Ihejirika, Sherrif, Pastor
    Oriitsejofor, and all the Jonathan Regime Boka financiers to keep himself in power beyound 2015. That WILL NOT happen.

    Election must hold and jona MUST BE SACKED!

    APC WILL collate its own 2015 presidential results. If APC numbers show that APC Candidate won, APC WILL declare its Candidate the New President of Nigeria. If jona chooses to call himself a “riggged” president he MUST end up in the Hague like Gbagbo of Ivory Coast. The Die is cast!

  • King Carlos

    Fellow Nigerians, let’s think outside the box, the perpetrators of this dastardly acts might not necessarily be northerners. Reason is because no tribe in Nigeria protects or fights for its people more than the northerners, so, the reason that the northerners are killing themselves to make the country ungovernable for Jonathan doesn’t click.

    The annoying thing is that key northern leaders like Abdulsalam, Babangida, Sultan, Danjuma and co are nothing but figure heads. They are watching their people being killed on a daily basis and have not taken any huge step other than to give press conferences.

    Only 3 people have summoned the courage to speak out and one of them paid the ultimate price with his life, the other paid with his job, and the last one is simply untouchable, the ebora owu himself, baba iyabo.

    Please, let’s forget about religion, tribe and think about the oneness of our nation.

    God bless Nigeria
