The troubled northern city of Kano has been rocked by two explosions in different locations of the city on Saturday some few days after a deadly blast at a motor park killed scores and left several others injured.
Although details are still sketchy, it is reported that the first explosion happened at Hotoro area, close to the NNPC Mega station.
A source who pleaded anonymity said, “We are yet to get details of the explosion, but sources around the area said that the explosion was from a car who refused to stop for search at a military stop and search point.”
He said the military patrol team subsequently pursued the car and later engaged the occupants in an exchange of gun fire.
“The car was actually loaded with explosives which was detonated as a result of the heavy gunfire” he added.
The other explosion reportedly occurred at Tishama neighbourhood along the Eastern Bye-Pass Road.
Details about the second explosion is still sketchy. Residents said it was also followed by sporadic gunshots.
