Blast injures one in Kaduna

A man was injured on Wednesday in Kaduna, after an explosive device went off by the roadside and shattered his windscreens.

The explosive was planted by the roadside at Dankande village, along Zaria road, Kaduna.

The victim who was driving alone in his car, suffered severe cuts from sharp glass pieces flying from the impact of the explosion.

An army official, who confirmed the incident to PREMIUM TIMES, said the victim has been rushed to a nearby clinic.

“The car was badly damaged,” the source who sought anonymity said.

Kaduna is just recovering from the recent anarchy that ensued after the dreaded terrorist Boko Haram sect blew up three churches killing at least 26 worshippers. The attack triggered reprisal attacks by Christians in the city, and counter reprisals by the Muslims.

The state government thereafter imposed a curfew on the city. The curfew was lifted on Tuesday, a day before the recent explosion.
