Just few hours after about 17 people were killed in a bomb blast in Yobe, scores are now feared dead after two suicide bombers blew themselves up in Kano.

Details are still sketchy, but Naijacrux learnt that an unknown number of people are feared dead in the blast, which occurred at Kano Line, located at Naibawa Area, along Zaria Road.

The explosion sounded at about 3:15 PM with thick smokes immediately billowing towards the sky and residents scampering for safety.


The vicinity of the scene of the incident is now deserted as security agencies and aid workers try to evacuate injured people to hospital, our correspondent says.

?I was attending to customers when I heard a loud explosion that shook the building,? said one local shopkeeper who works opposite the terminus.

An orange seller inside the bus station confirmed his account.

?We rushed outside and we saw plumes of black smoke coming from the Kano Line Station,? the shopkeeper said.

?People and buses were rushing out of the bus station. One bus was splattered with blood and human flesh.?

There was no immediate indication of casualties but there were fears of a heavy death toll, given that the bus station is normally packed with commuters and travellers.

Details are still sketchy and the Police in the state are yet to make any comment on the incident.

The spokesperson for the Kano State Police Command, Magaji Majiya as well as the Police Commissioner, Ibrahim Idris, did not answer or return calls.

UPDATE: The Kano state Commissioner of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has confirmed the death of 12 persons, including two suicide bombers, in today?s bomb attack on Kano Line Motor park on Zaria Road, Kano.

He did not say how many people were injured.
