Bomb blast rocks Kano Central Mosque;many feared dead
Scores of people are feared dead in a bomb blast at Kano
Central Mosque, near the Emir’s palace, witnesses and the
spokesperson of the Military Joint Task Force in the state,
Captain Ikechukwu Eze, have said.
Witnesses said the bomb went off as Muslim faithful prepared
for their Friday jumaat prayers, causing serious pandemonium
as people ran helter-skelter for dear lives.
The explosion, which went off at about 2 p.m. before the
Imam of the mosque, Sani Zahradeen, began his sermon, was
said to have been followed by sporadic gunshots.
The number of casualties is not yet known.
Already the police have cordoned off the entire area while the
entire mosque has been deserted.
