At least 25 people were killed from five explosions that occurred in Kano, Reuters has reported.

The explosions occurred on Monday evening at New Road, Sabon Gari area of the city.

Witnesses said the explosions occurred at a popular and busy commercial luxury bus park where buses that convey passengers to other states of the country, particularly the southern states, take off from. Reuters said its reporter counted 25 corpses.

The police have confirmed the blast but are yet to confirm the casualty.

The area has now been cordoned off by soldiers and police officers.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Kano State has been thrown into pandemonium as a bomb just went off at New Road, Sabon Gari area of the city.

A witness told PREMIUM TIMES that the bomb exploded at the hub of a commercial luxury bus park usually filled with commuters going from Kano to the South.

Another witnesses said an Improvised Explosive Device, IED, was planted near the park causing one of the buses to go up in flames.

This has made it difficult to ascertain the casualty figures.

The blast caused a stampede with many people getting hurt and cars crashing.

When contacted, the spokesperson of the Police in Kano, Magaji Majiya, confirmed the incident. He however, said he has not gotten the full details.

    All Nigerians offer are sweat, blood…and more blood! An inept government at the centre, demonic religious lunatics to the north, murderous kidnappers and robbers to the south, and heat in Abuja!

    • Dan maikoko

      By far the best comment ever on any blog. An inept government indeed. These good for nothing upstarts and fakes at the helms of affairs in these country still have the audacity to plan to force themselves on the people come 2015.

      • Mpitikwelu_na_Ugwu_Awusa

        I was thinking you will leave politics for once and think about innocent wasted tonight by evil things.

        • Dan maikoko

          Politics is what led us to this. If we are lucky to have a president who knows anything about Nigerian history and politics (1) he would have known that it was hopeless to expect to win this war (2) Boko Haram and northern elites are not interchangeable, they are infact mutually exclusive as the attack on the Emir of Kano and other prominent northern leaders has shown (3) A bomb in a market at Maiduguri is simply a bomb at a market in Otuoke. Thanks to the opposition they bought and installed the “balls” the president used to visit Borno. The evil thing that wasted these lives tonight is the lack of leadership that will at least protect them or even go further to stop and punish those who carried out the attacks.

        • Olajumoke

          mpitikwelu, did you yourself leave out politics? Your comments are riddled with politics. Anyway, this should be understood because MEND creeks terrorism and Boko Haram desert Terrorism are both political , and therefore evil and unjustified. The two of you are simply exchanging batons terrorism and therefore tearing down Nigeria. You are BOTH (Mend’s terrorism and Boko Haram’s terrorism) evil, the very extreme of evil. Both of you are taking Africa back to pre-slavery epoch as if we beasts and pre-human. It is unfortunate what the Mend terrorism did to us and what the Boko Haram evil terrorism is doing now. The two of you are evil faces of Africa. We shall overcome the two of by the genuine efforts of Nigerian citizens.

      • bashir yusuf

        Inept govt or no inept govt, its a shame to leaders in the north for not been able to rein in dis thugs in the name of boko haram, I presume u are a muslim, I am one too, but my islam as enthrone by Allah, and practised by rasul sa’ is not like this! Muslims are not allowed to attack innocent people, no where is it written that there is compulsion in islam, so for BH, its a loose-loose! Sultan is shameless for calling for amnesty, is he indirectly supportive of this rabid dogs? When the militants were bombing the south,niger delta, they didn’t give ultimatum to muslims working in the oil industry, the didn’t attack hausas in sabo down south, whatever deaths occured were either security men, or people caught by stray bullets or amongst themselves, how would you rationally explain this, is dis poverty? Is this how rasul said muslims should protest unfavourable situations? We need to tell each other the truth, northern leaders are failures from ibb,buhari,gowon and sultan. Don’t bring any issue of inept govt into this, d same inept govt affects people in ebonyi, but they didn’t bomb, why kano,kaduna or borno??? Shame on all leaders especially northern leaders! Islam, my islam doesn’t supports evil!!!

        • Dan maikoko

          A failed govt blame others. How can we call on community leaders of any region to stop crime and criminals? where is the trillion naira the govt budgeted this year for defence? Did the govt give the money and the authority to command the sss, the police, the army and immigration to the northern leaders? To whom more is given more is expected, and to those who have been given nothing do not expect anything. This battle is not about Allah and his religion alone, it is about wether the fed. govt. will see to it that every one within nigeria lives by the constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria or not, it is about the fundamentals of modern civilised soceities in which the primary responsibility of govt is the protection of lives of its citizens even if it means calling for a breakup of the country if certain parts wont obey the constitution and the govt cant reign them in. This waste of lives occur because the govt says it can safeguard our lives when it patently cant.

          • Enemona

            “This battle is not about Allah and his religion alone” This, to me, sounds like a subtle affirmation that it’s about Allah and religion plus more. Emphasis is on “alone”. I now see why Boko Haram is so confident and gains more clout by the day, many do, in their minds,believe that they’re fighting Allah’s cause, what ignorance!

          • Enemona, why do u always think that u can create something out of nothing?

          • Enemona

            What do you mean by this statement? What exactly is “nothing”?

          • tualey

            Thank you Enemona, i was going to emphasise on that phrase ‘alone’. You totally read my mind. This is just to tell you that all hausa / fulani citizen support the evil acts of Boko Haram…from the Sultan, to the emirs, Bhuharis, Atikus and even Sambo Dasuki (NSA). They all subscribe to the activities of the Boko Haram. That’s why the stupid and insane sultan was calling for Amnesty for these animals.. the clock is tickling, we are waiting, Nigeria will soon cease to be no more, mark my words

          • Dan maikoko

            Some die in the service of Christ by naively exposing themselves to mortal danger, others do the same in the name of Krishna while still others give their lives for other gods. Yes to Boko Haram adherents its about Allah plus more. You only need to look at the way they fight by killing themselves before they kill their enemies. It is foolhardy to pitch the Nigerian security forces against such a formidable force. Forces that have no assurance that their legimate benefits will go to their families after they are killed in battle.

          • Enemona

            No matter how you see it, killing innocent people, children, nursing mothers, pregnant women, etc, in the name of Allah is ignorance and foolishness and it should be condemned and stopped by all means necessary. Do not justify it with others dying for Christ, others may die for christ while serving under harsh conditions but it becomes really wicked if they die for christ or any deity or religion by killing innocent people. It is sadder when people, i mean, a huge majority of people support and justify such atrocities.

            As per security, what do you expect the govt to do, fold its hands and watch them? I do not support amnesty because it has failed us several times and we should never negotiate with rogues and terrorists. Amnesty for what? Killing people because they don’t believe in same religion you believe in? That means I can wake up tomorrow and and put a bullet through your skull and asked then ask for amnesty. What society would we be building if we give amnesty to people who commit large scale murder irrespective of their reasons. That’s like giving incentives to criminals to up their game. While I do not support this administration’s handling of the BH issue, I do not also think amnesty is the magic wand to wave.

            We complain about our leaders and governments but top of our problems is our own poor thinking and attitudes. Changing this country requires thinking and actions devoid of quirky religious and ethnic sentiments. We must realise God has created us to live together irrespective of our beliefs and mother-tongue.

          • Dan maikoko

            I dont support the killing of innocent by anybody. What is worst than the atrocities of Boko Haram is the fact that a Nigerian citizen was arrested by the army and handed over to a police station where within the sanctity of the police station built and charged with the defence of the citizens he was publically executed without trial. Rewind to 2009 and you will understand why we landed where we are today. A lot of innocent people have died without just cause in the hands of the nigerian goverment and are still dying. The govt has murdered sleep and anybody who looks at the situation from 2011 will never understand it. I for one know for sure that to ask the corrupt, inept and demoralised nigerian security forces to defeat Boko Haram or protect Nigerians is simply a recipe for the continuous murder of Nigerians. God save us all.

    • Enemona

      Ain’t they lucky in Abuja? Just heat! Just how long would they keep enjoying this heat? Time shall tell.

  • I heard about the incident this evening. But the photos shown look nothing like the area concerned. I am very familiar with this area

    • Mpitikwelu_na_Ugwu_Awusa

      I wish you were there when it happened. We would have used your carcass to locate the place. Conscienceless things.

  • bashir yusuf

    Imagine the depraved mind of people who did this, and a certain sultan is calling for amnesty, el rufai and co! What part ,surah, or sunnah of the islamic correspondence justifies this barbaric act? This people are simply insane,they are not muslims and sultan should never ask for amnesty for them. Whenever I read the tweet from bashir yusuf,aliyu tilde, el rufai, and their hirelings on twitter and facebook, I get amused, these guys are hypocrites,and shameless, and I say this with all sense of modesty, I followed these guys on twitter,includin ffk, when general azazi of blessed memory was the NSA, all the rants,hues&cry,blames were directed at azazi as if he is the sole architect of the insecurity problem,they villified him, accused him of having stolen all the money allocated for security. But immediately jonathan removed him and appointed col sambo dasuki, I av NEVER for one day, heard,seen,or read any tweet, abuse, or allegation directed against sambo, el rufai, bashir yusuf,aliyu tilde ,and some of el rufai’s bull dogs have not for ONCE mentioned sambo’s name as been incompetent, I realised the whole shout and crusade of these guys especially mr elrufai nasir is fraudulent and deceitful. I put it to him that he’s a fraud,and bigot,who would rather criticise a southerner(azazi) than sambo, he would rather blame otedola,gej ,but wouldn’t speak ill of farouk lawan. For any reader who glances througj my write up, if you are in doubt, understudy the patterns of these fake men,who lay claim to patriotism! Rip to all d lost soul. NB am not&will never be a jonathan apologist, but the likes of bashir yusuf, aliyu tilde, el rufai, are fake men and ethnic bigots!!!! Thanks

    • Dan maikoko

      Its not Azazi, its not Sambo or anybody else. Do what you like but if the head is rotten nothing works.

  • akpos1

    This must not be allowed to go without a retaliation. My dear SS&SE peoples, we should remember what happened to the Oba of Illorin.

    We must react within 23 hours to prove that we are serious.

    • adams

      Please all men and women of SS and SE let us go and react. We still have a lot of money from the rest of the money laundered by Ibori/Alamieyeseigha which they have used to buy houses ans estates in London and Maryland USA, let us use these proceeds to buy weapons and attack Nigeria immediately. Let us GO Republic of SOUTH SOUTH and SOUTH EAST and attack Nigeria. We have enough money which our leaders-Alamieyesegha and Ibori had laundered which we can use to buy weapons and some drugs too for the boys.

      • Dan maikoko

        Sorry Adams but you will have to attack the Alams, Goodluck, Ibori, Orubebes and other minions of the Niger delta first. If you dont catch my drift they are heavily invested in Nigeria especially in Abuja and will be your main problem if you decide to separate them from their stolen wealth by cutting them off Abuja. They dont invest in the ND, remember when Orubebe buried his father there was no road to his village and Azazi and co. had to use helicopters which end their lives. In another show of Niger Delta shame Azazi had to be buried in Yenegoa because there is no road to his ancestral village either and no one is willing to risk another helicopter ride. Have you been to Abuja lately? Did you see the roads and perpetual construction going on there? we are all in this together, abandoned property is the main stumbling block for the Niger Deltans. What an irony of history!

  • To your tent oh Israel

    • james

      Oh yes baaaby, to your tents oh Isreal-MEND and Boko Haram terrorists. All of you can go if you want. Please leave. The rest of us civil and modern will remain and sort things out. Mend leaders-you have enough reserve of money laundered into US and Europe which you can use to buy more weapons and drugs. You should use the money now. Alamieyeseigha should please release the rest of the money he laundeed abroad for the boys to buy more weapons so that you all prepare and ready to retaliate-One terrorist(mend in the creeks) is as sickly and as insane as the other(boko haram in the north). Please the creek terrorists- start now and attack _Forward on the Republic of SS and SE-four more years-Hail the President Jonathan-Forward to the Republic of SS and SE.

  • Mpitikwelu_na_Ugwu_Awusa

    Lord, May They See Justice From Our Pains. Amen.

    • Bankole Babawale

      And may they be illicitly and criminally pardoned too just Like President Jonathan illicitly and criminally pardoned the criminal and money launderer -Alamieyeseigha-whose laundered money will now be used by MEND and the creek terrorists-the creek terrorists version of the evil terrorists Boko haram say Amen mpiti-Amen-Just two sides of the same primitivity and evil-Boko Haram terrorists and Mend/creek terrorists-when all of you are done please leave the rest of us who want to join the civilised,democratic and modern inclusive world alone.You hear mpitikwelu-na_afam_na_deri-sagay.

      • Mpitikwelu_na_Ugwu_Awusa

        the blood that flowed night was Igbo blood mixing together with Yoruba, Ibibio etc on the street of Kano.Tonight is no politics. this is a human tragedy. A catastrophe. I wish you will summon the better angel inside you and spare a thought for the families of these innocent people. IT COULD HAVE BEEN YOU.

        • Dan maikoko

          You forgot to mention the majority blood that flowed, that of Hausa truck pushers, Yan dako and others totalling over 10 people about half the victims. You are good at pigeon-holing issues and seeing them from your narrow perspective. Yes it could have been me as you said since I frequent that part of Kano for parts. The real tragedy is not that armed robbers and terrorists reign supreem in our beloved country, the tragedy is that we know for certain there is no leader or leadership that we should look up to.

        • Bankole Babawale

          mpitikwelu_na_George
          Akpabia_na_akpos1, stop your hyprocrisy and intense dishonesty. You just said here thru one of
          the paid apologists of President Jonathan that “to your tent oh
          Israel” -that was from one of your online paid apologist group member or group name -called George Akpabio. Then one of
          you-hired apolosgists of President Jonathan’s Presidency- akpos1 said “Southern” leaders should be ready to attack , and that
          this should be done immediately. Please see akpos1 post here. Finally,
          akpos1_na_mpitkwelu_na_afam_na George akpabio said South Southerners
          should remember what happened to the Oba of Ilorin. We know all these are from President Jonathan’s presidency. Therefore South
          South should attack and be ready for war. You must be an extremely
          dishonest person like your sponsors in Aso Rock to then pretend in this post of yours which I am responding to . We know you
          people in and out. And you will be exposed soon as you are being
          exposed daily. So? Four more years of corruption under President
          Jonathan and Alamieyeseigha-should please give the go-ahead for the
          release of the money he has laundered to the US and Europe which he used
          to invest in mortgage businesses-in the US(the state of Maryland and other places), so that you all can use same money to
          buy arms for the MEND terrorists_(I guess you people call yourself
          “freedom” fighters-but we know you are just a bunch of murderers!!!). We are waiting. This is not five years ago when
          your creek terrorists had the sympathy of some of us-for we actually defended you using civil and democratic platforms and spaces. Then we thought your position from the creeks was a honorable and responsible position. You bombed all
          that by the intense corruption Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke and President
          Jonathan sit on. Thus, we will use democratic means to expose every corruption
          under President Jonathan-common corrupt people. The first shot is that
          Alamieyeseigha CANNOT get that Maryland USA property back. Remember the
          source of that money (even when those two Senators are pretending-it will not work) is laundered money. I am just giving you hints, so that you know
          that you guys are
          cornered.

    • Dan maikoko

      Who? The evil terrorists, the rapist, the kidnappers and fraudsters or the failed government that brought them to life?

    • adetola

      please tell me the difference between the evil group called Mend terrorists and the evil group called Boko Haram.

      • Did you really ask this question?

        • adetola

          Gideon Okar, After taking good dose of drugs MEND Terrorists killed with bombs and ammunition purchased from money criminals like Alamieyeseigha and Ibori laundered abroad which they had used to buy houses. Proceeds are used to import ammunition and bombs thru the high seas. After consuming drugs and charms Boko Haram terrorists kill with bombs and ammunition supplied by money laundered by same criminals in NIgeria who had stacked money abroad and thru blood money supplied by international network of so-called “Islamic” terrorist groups. They import their own bombs and ammunition thru the deserts. Unfortunately as Boko Haram and MEND terrorist kill and murder, they have told the world one simple message AFRICA IS BABARIC AND PRIMITIVE AND SLAVERY AND COLONIALISM WERE BOTH JUSTIFIED. Gideon Okar, please challenge this and name one part of the world where you have the kind of your MEND terrorism, your so-called Gideon Okar primitive and stone age “bravery” and the so-called “Islamic” terrorism Boko Haram unleashes everyday. I laugh at you people when you take basic primitivity of the Gideon Okar type as “bravery”!!! Between Gideon Okar, MEND terrorism and and Boko Haram, terrorism you have no difference-BABARISM AND PRIMITIVITY. REASON WHY IT MAY BE JUSTIFIED THAT AFRICA WAS ENSLAVED AND COLONISED. Please challenge this claim on the point of reason, good thinking and reflection.

  • Mpitikwelu_na_Ugwu_Awusa

    Tonight we mourn 60 souls. Killed because they are southerners. Killed because they are Christians. The World looks on helpless. The Sultan mocks the victims with a call for amnesty. Another day Another Massacre. When will it end, Southern elites?

    • Bankole Babawale

      mpitikwelu_na_afam as dishonest as you are, you claimed in another post that there ought not be politics in this. But every of your post is drenched with politics. here you are in this post whipping up religious and regional sentiments. As if you were right there at the scene of the bomb, (i) you gave the number of people who died, (ii) you gave their religious affiliation, (iii) you gave their ethnicity. And yet in another post you faked and pretended emotions, you said people should not introduce politics. You are incurably dishonest. This is what President Jonathan sent you to come and do. This is what you will use the laundered money of Alamieyeseigha do-use the money to buy arms and drugs and bring them back thru the ocean to continue the evil terrorism between you in the creeks and your Boko Haram counterpart in the North. While Mend terrorists use the seas to bring in your evil weapons, Boko Haram uses the desert-same evil with two same faces-same evil on the same two sided coin. Remember when the terrorists in the creeks who called themselves “freedom fighters” were killing people years ago, no one was spared. Boko Haram unfortunately and in an evil way learnt from their creeks counterparts. Both of you are evil through and through and no amount of politics and call for southern solidarity can absolve Mend terrorists and Boko haram terrorists from guilt. So just continue to play your politics. we know your masters in Aso Rock. Please stop the hypocrisy-you play politics thru and thru for this is what you are paid for. You count the number of posts you make and you get paid for them.So continue.

  • sam

    It takes a good man with the gun to deal with the bad guy with the gun. No body has the monopoly of violence or the knowledge of evil. Out of 52 churches on Borno, 50 were destroyed. Christians are massacred, bombed and killed for what the believe. Muslims pretend and practice the principle of taqiya (deception). All the victims in the bus leaving sabo were Christians, the government pretends not to know what was happening. Any right thinking person will know that this is utterly evil and demonic. The solution to nigeria is to legalise guns. It will get to a time when some southerners will start manufacturing bomb and placed in the mosque or predominantly where muslims are to taste the evil the are perpetuating in the name of a god that can not fight for himself.

    • Enemona

      Many southerners are Muslims too. So you bomb them too? Southerner doesn’t automatically translate to ‘Christian’ just like northerner does not directly mean Muslim, many Nigerians need some real education.

  • tualey

    If the Igbos dont strike back this time around, then i will believe they have truly sold out their souls and conscience to the hausa/fulanis. What kind of barbaric act is this?? It has really reached its peak now and i expect every aggrieved southerner to start hitting every useless hausa/fulani they sight. This cannot continue like this, is these the same people the useless and crazy sultan was agitating amnesty for? We dont need to wait for the clueless Jonathan who is being controlled by the hausas to come and defend us, we have to start the fight NOW!!! If the Chief Of Army Staff fails to do something about this ugly incident, then i believe something is wrong somewhere. but i truly believe he won’t disappoint us the igbos. This is surely the end of a failed country called Nigeria.

    • manir

      Wot are saying doesn’t make sense @ all,..This Boko haram of a thing has notin to do with the Hausa/Fulani,but clearly political.its ur people killing ur own people,destroying d big cities in d north and trying to make everything look like its d hausa’s attacking d non muslims.have u ever come to ask urslf dis question,y is it dat not a single BOMB has gone off in d south?only d north.If @ its a war against u(the southerners)then d best way to attack u guys is by planting dis very bombs in ur respective states.You fools need to start using ur respective dumb heads

    • Dr. Twix

      What nonesense are you saying? A bomb exploded in a motorpark filled with passengers (most travelling from kano to lagos). Why do we give it any other interpretation more than what it actually is? Why must we make it appear as though it is only the igbos or christians that died in the park? When a calamity befalls us as a nation lets collectively condemn it, not affiliating the cause to a particular group, whether ethnical or religious. Why will a media report that ”the bomb exploded in a place known to be predominated by the christians”? Since when did a motorpark become a christian residence?
      And to you who is suggesting that you start killing northerners overthere, I urge you to give it a try and see what follows!

  • blackie

    Between a pardoned alledged thief and boko haram that are unrepentant killers, many misguided and empty brain Nigerians want the thief dead while, their boko haram is granted amnesty. With the south ever learn, they have learnt to keep quiet about their bulama, but for the south, until they insult GEJ sufficiently, they will not rest. Ignoranmus

    • bolaji

      Stop that dubious attempt to exonerate a thief like Alamieyeseigha thru using regional sentiments. Both Boko Haram and Alamieyeseigha are criminals and evil. Why? The money stolen and laundered by Alamieyeseigha is used to buy arms and send back home for the creeks terrorist. So Boko Haram and Alamieyeseigha and those who gave him pardon are evil, criminals and a disgrace to AFRICA. STOP WHIPPING UP REGIONAL SOUTHERN SENTIMENTS. IT WILL NOT WORK

  • God is faithfull

    My brothers and sisters, whether you are a christian, a muslem, a hausa, an Igbo, Yoruba, these does not count.

    It takes one that has blood and water flowing in his /her vain to say no to evil. All these shedding of innocent blood is too much. Do we ask ourselves where we will be after death? DO WE KNOW THAT DEATH IS INEVITABLE IRRESPECTIVE OF TRIBE OR RELIGION? Anything we do or say will be accounted to us on the last day (death). What ever we have or we are what awaits us is 6ft and one thing is sure “what ever a man sow so shall he reap”

    My heart bleed to the innocent people that are being wasted every day (may their soul rest in peace, Amen). Why taken of life when we can not give one? Why do we hate ourselves so much that we keep destroying ourselves. Today if it is Boko haram, mend, kidnappers etc even in the families. May God have mercy on all us because most of us are boko haram and mend the way we talk. My concern is life being wasted. Some people killed in this cause might also be infidel that does nt go to church or mosque, so the issue of religious here is not important but lives.

    We don’t really need to shed blood to get what we want . The government has failed us and God Almighty is watching them yes, I agree but what of us individually, do we think we have not failed God the creator of me and you. One thing is sure “It is appointed to every body after death comes judgement irrespective of religion and tribe.

    My brothers and sister, in case you are ignorance of this, religion or tribe, can never take us to heaven, rather it is our righteousness. why not all of us drop all the killings, amend our ways and reconcile with God for hail is real and heaven is real

    Thank you all as you read this.

  • Enemona

    While I agree with you, I do not think including Buhari’s name on that list is right. I don’t know of others but I, from deep within my heart, do not think Buhari would go to that length to gain political points. He still remains one of the most honest and upright people in this country, unfortunately, the country’s elites have successfully found a way to tie him with religious extremism and terrorism. I am resolute in my belief that he’s one of the people we need to claim the country from the elites that have come together through mutual interests to rob us all of the good life and development we deserve.

    Why do I think so? The integrity of a man is in his character and his past records. No matter what they try to do to him, he has shown in his actions and times as a public official to be upright, he had all the opportunities to enrich himself but he shunned them. Can you count many public officials that have been able to do that? He was once the president of this country and Chairman of PTF but still not rich. Contrast that to the Obasanjos, the Abachas, Atikus, the IBBs, etc, we’ve heard a lot of scandals linked to these people but can we point just one linked to Buhari?. As long as we continue to be used by our elites, with their perverted sense of entitlement, we will never move an inch while the world leaves us behind.

    • Dan maikoko

      i look at peoples comment that Buharai and other northern leaders have something to do with Boko Haram and I see the mind of GEJ. This stand of the president has killed more Nigerians than anything since the civil war. After the attack and the murder of the Emir of Kano’s bodyguard, anybody who still holds this view is beyond redemption. We must remember that ALL nigerians are dying from boko haram attacks and subsequent reprisal killings from the security agencies so no one is immune. It is foolhardy to see this as a northern problem.
