Many people were feared dead this afternoon following a bomb explosion that rocked the Kano School of Health Technology in North-West Nigeria this afternoon. The blast which occurred at about 2pm emanated from a parking lot at the school premises located at the BUK Road, according to the online medium, Infrastructure News.
Spokesman of the Kano State Police Command, Magaji Magia, confirmed the development.
The high calibre improvised explosive device was detonated at a parking lot close to the provost’s office at the School of Hygiene, a staff of the school said.
A Kano resident, Aminu Mohammed, captured the development in his post on Facebook, writing:
“Another terrible and annoying day. A bomb exploded at Kano State School of Hygiene this afternoon. I have called friends who work nearby and none is picking. Some not even going through. This is terribly annoying. May God Almighty’s wrath locate the perpetrators anywhere they are.
“They left their houses this morning. They left their parents. The parents were hoping to reunite with their children later in the day. They had dreams. The parents have expectations. Some cruel bastards have ended all of that, causing many families unbearable pains. Why detonate a bomb to kill fellow human beings? Why detonate bomb to kill innocent school children? This is war against the poor, it has always been. I doubt if any rich man has a child in School of Hygiene. May Allah punish all that is involved in this.”
The explosion bear the imprint of the Islamic sect, Boko Haram.
