A female suicide bomber in Nigeria’s Kano city killed three people and injured seven others on Monday in an attack targeting women who had lined up to buy kerosene, police said.
This came just hours after 5 people were killed in a bomb attack on St Charles Family Church, Kano and another bomb attack was foiled at North West University, also in Kano.
In the Monday attack, a female suicide bomber detonated an explosive at (a petrol) station in the Hotoro area, badly injuring 10 people.
The suicide bomber was said to have found her way into the crowd of people struggling to buy kerosene at the NNPC mega station before detonating the explosive.
According to Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, four people died in the bomb blast, including the suicide bomber.
“Three of them died in hospital, while seven are undergoing treatment,” Kano police spokesman Musa Magaji Majia told AFP.
