Kano Explosion: Many Dead Recorded As Explosion Rocks Sabon Gari, Kano

An explosion has been reported in the Sabon Gari area of Kano State on Tuesday.

The incident although still sketchy has reportedly caused the death of an unspecified number of people in the area.

A video circulating on the internet showed people scampering for safety while two individuals were sighted on the floor — One with his stomach organs out while the other had one of his legs shattered.

However, THE GIANT SOURCE observed from at least five emerging videos that the explosion may have taken place around a yet-to-be identified Nursery and Primary school in the area.

Many school children have reportedly sustained various degrees of injuries.

The Kano State Government has, however, revealed that it cannot officially ascertain the cause of the explosion while the State’s Police Command said the explosion occurred after a cylinder exploded in a building housing the school.
