The two suicide bombers who attacked different branches of two of Nigeria’s leading telcos this morning died in vain, it has emerged. Nobody, apart from the suicide bombers, died in the attacks, according to a spokesman of the Joint Security Task Force (JTF) in Kano, North-West Nigeria, where the Airtel regional office located at the popular Malam Kato Square and the MTN office at Maimalari road in Bompai came under attack.

JTF spokesman, Capt. Ikedichi Iweha, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the first bomber who went to Airtel office succeeded in detonating the bomb which led to the destruction of the office. He said that only the operator of the company’s generator set was injured in the attack which took place at about 8.45 a.m.

“With the exception of the two bombers, nobody else died in the two coordinated incidents,” Iweha said.

Iweha said the bomber who went to the MTN office was intercepted by security operatives before he could gain entry into the premises at about 8.50 a.m, adding that he died in the blast instantly.

“The quick response of the troops around the place averted the destruction of the office but the wall fence was touched in the coordinated attack.”

The JTF spokesman said that security had been beefed up around the two areas with a view to enhancing security.
