The area cordoned off by security attached to shoprite.
The Nigeria Police Force just announced that another
bomb blast occurred this morning at NNPC mega station
along Maiduguri road in Kano state. Continue for a press
statement from the police…
Today, 28-07-14 at about 10:00am, another suicide
bomb went off at Nigerian National Petroleum
Corporation NNPC Mega Filling Station at Hotoro
Quarter along Maiduguri Road, Kano. A suicide bomber
suspected to be a female had slipped into the crowd of
citizens buying kerosene at the Station before
detonating the explosives. The suicide bomber and
three others have been confirmed dead, eight persons
are injured and rushed to the Hospital.
It is instructive to note that the Mega Station did not go
ablaze due to the security barricade put in place by the
Policemen on duty at the station. Such a situation
would have clearly complicated the Emergency
Security Forces have cordoned off the scene, and
Police Bomb Disposal Experts are “sweeping” the area.
Citizens are advised to stay off the scene, be vigilant
and report any suspicious person(s) or activities to
security forces. Full scale investigation has
commenced, intensive patrol of the city is ongoing.
