Kano once again came under terrorist attack this afternoon in what is becoming almost a daily affair.
This time, the target is the Kano State Polytechnic. Many students are reported to have been killed when a bomb exploded at the school around 2pm as students were checking the national Youth Service Corps (NYSC) mobilisation list.
The mobilisation list was said to have been pasted outside the school this morning, attracting many students who had completed their HND programme.
One report quoted a management staff of the school as saying that she saw hundreds of students checking the list shortly before the explosion.
Then a female suicide bomber blew herself up. The bomber was hidden in the crowd, a witness, Isyaku Adamu, told the AFP news agency.
“It was a huge crowd and people were jostling to go through the lists,” he said.
This is the fifth attack in Kano since Sunday, at least three of which have been carried out by female bombers. At least 19 people lost their lives in the series of bombings.
