NEWS - Posted on: 17th May. 2022 at 11:33AM
There is a report of an explosion in Sabon Gari area of Kano State.

Some residents say it was a suicide bomber who detonated the explosive while some eyewitnesses say it resulted from a gas cylinder.

Kano State Police Commissioner said it was a gas cylinder in a seller's shop that exploded and brought down the building near a school.

More than 4 people have been declared dead and many injured, some still trapped.

Many insist there was a bomb blast. One eyewitness who spoke to our correspondent has this to say:

"Incident was a Person Borne Improvised Explosive Device PIED. The suicide bomber tried to gain access to Winners Academy on Abba road by Court Road in Sabon Gari. The school security guards stopped him and pushed him back forcing the bomb to explode killing them all and three others close to them including a woman and her son selling food in front of the school. Fortunately enough, the bomber did not gain access into the school so no student casualty but some pupils were injured."

More details are expected.
