Two fresh explosions were reported in Kano on Thursday. The explosions, according to an eyewitness, occurred within a few minutes apart near a mosque in the Gyadi Gyadi area of the Kano State capital.
The witness said the blasts occurred at Press Road and Court Road. He said the first one was an explosion from an Improvised Explosive Device while the second appeared to have been a controlled detonation by the police anti-bomb squad.
He said soldiers diverted traffic away from the scenes of the explosions, to keep people away from harm.
