A suspected bomber met his waterloo in Kano on Wednesday as he was apprehended and killed by an angry mob near the Emir of Kano’s palace.
The suspected bomber was said to have been apprehended immediately after setting off an Improvised Explosive Device near a Mosque very close to the palace of the Emir of Kano, Ado Bayero on Wednesday night.
The aggrieved residents were said to have defied the explosion, which went off at Kofar Fatalwa by the Kano Central Mosque, and arrested one of the bombers, who had arrived on a tricycle to set off the bomb.It was learnt that the residents pursued the terrorists after the blast, and burnt one of the men before handing over the other to security operatives.
The spokesperson for the Joint Task Force in Kano, Ikedioha Iweha, confirmed the explosion.
He also confirmed that no one died from the explosion, itself.
It will be recalled that the Emir escaped an assassination attempt on January 19 when gunmen threw an IED at his convoy.
