Following the recent explosion along Aba road by Court road in the Sabon Gari area of Kano, the Kano police command has issued a statement confirming the cause of the explosion to be from gas and not bomb as alleged by some sources.
The Kano Police Commissioner CP Samaila Dikko in a short video clip issued to newsmen stated that there was an explosion from a welder’s shop close to a Nursery Primary School.
The explosion brought the building down and people were buried in rubbles from where four dead bodies were recovered.
“It wasn’t a bomb blast. It’s a gas cylinder explosion. The seller’s shop is on the ground floor of the building where the school is located.
“So, when the cylinder exploded, it brought down the building and the pupils got injured. There wasn’t a bomb blast” the police commissioner stated.
