The prompt intervention of the anti-bomb squad drafted from Bompai Police headquarters averted what could have been the most deadly attack in the ancient city of Kano on Friday. The bomb was reportedly planted just some minutes before the start of Juma’at prayers.

Muslim faithfuls who had arrived at the mosque to observe the prayers quickly left when the heard about the discovery of the bomb placed inside the prayer house.

    Could that be Boko Haram? My fellow Nigerians, the sooner we understand the fact that the incensant bombing and killing of innocent souls are politically motivated the better for christians and muslems. If they have succeeded in exploding the device there must be worst reprisal attack than that of Kuduna, then religious war would have been ignited.
