Six people, including two female suicide bombers died in Wednesday’s explosion at the Kano textile market, with seven others sustaining various degrees of injury, Police have said.

The wounded are being treated at Murtala Mohammed Specialist Hospital.

According to Kano State Police Commissioner, Aderele Shinaba, two female suicide bombers arrived at the market pretending to be buyers of textile materials, but as soon as they entered the market, they went behind Access Bank, and requested water they could ease themselves with in one of the market latrines.

The refusal of some traders to offer them water led to an argument which drew a crowd before the two bombers detonated their explosives.

The blast occurred at a place known as “fillin parking” along Ibrahim Taiwo Way, a major intersection leading to the popular Kano Kantin Kwari Market.

While the military has occupied the area to forestall further attacks, State Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso is in Lagos with his deputy, Dr Ganduje, as he seeks the APC’s presidential ticket ahead of the 2015 presidential election.
