An explosion has gone off at one of the busiest locations in Kano yesterday, just as the state governor, Rabi’u Kwankwaso, and other top political office holders are in Lagos for the national convention of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to residents and security officials, the blast occurred at a place known as “filling parking” at the Kano Kantin Kwari market.
Details of casualty are still sketchy at this time but the military has rushed to the scene, and condoning off the area.
The incident is coming less than two weeks after multiple explosions rocked the Kano Central Mosque, killing more than 100 people and injuring hundreds of others.
