Police confirm 3 dead, 25 injured in Kaduna bomb blasts

The Police in Kaduna Thursday confirmed that three persons died and 25 others were injured in the bomb attack on the “SOJ Building” housing the offices of three newspaper houses in Kaduna.
The Commissioner of Police, Jinjiri Abubakar, gave the figures at a press conference in Kaduna.
He said that two of those killed were trying to rescue the suspected attacker from being lynched by aggrieved residents of the affected area.
Mr. Abubakar said the third victim was a motorcyclist who was hit by the explosion, when it was thrown to the road by the attacker.
The commissioner said that the injured victims are receiving treatment at various hospitals within the city.
Meanwhile, Mr. Abubakar said, the attacker, who sustained injuries on his head and lower limbs, is being observed by doctors to ascertain his condition.
“We shall refer him to an appropriate hospital for adequate medical attention if need be, but for now he is stable under our custody and I interviewed him.
“He lost some blood, but the doctors said he was okay and they are observing to see if he will need blood transfusion.”

The police commissioner, however, did not give further details on the identity of the suspect.
