Dozens Killed in Kano Bomb Attack

According to Sahara Reportesr at least twenty person have died after bombs exploded at a bus park in Sabon Gari area of Kano state, other media outlets have put the deaths at over sixty five.

An eye witness, Riena Chisa Luke who lives close to the Sabon Gari area where the blast occured wrote this on her facebook page:
It all happened this evening (yesterday) at about 5pm in Sabon Geri luxury bus park. I came back from work and was in taking a shower when sudenly i heard this strange sound that shook our building like an earthquake, i ran out of the bath at once. Behold it was a bomb blast. People were running helter skelter. About 3 luxury buses were attacked with passenger inside. They are our brothers and sisters. What a wicked and heartless world. Why are people this wicked. Why do they derive joy in hurting and killling innocent people. Enough is enough for terorism. Please stop killing our people. Stop taking away the life which you can not create. May God accept the souls of our brothers and sisters who lost their lives, amen.
Meanwhile, President Goodluck Jonathan has condemned, in strong terms, the Monday bomb blast.

This is contained in a statement issued in Abuja by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Dr Reuben Abati.

According to the statement, the President said the barbaric incident would not deter the Federal Government from its strong-willed determination to overcome those who do not mean well for the nation.

He said that the Federal Government would not be stampeded into abandoning its unrelenting war against terrorists in the country.

The president reassured Nigerians and foreigners in the country that government would do the needful to ensure the safety of lives and property.

He said government would continue to collaborate with local and international partners and stakeholders to check the menace of terrorism.
