An explosion has occurred at the School of Hygiene in Kano on Monday afternoon, with an undetermined number of fatalities and injuries at the site. The bombing is reported to be extensive.
The bombing took place near a building, reported to be near the private residence of Nigeria’s Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Dahiru Abubakar.
Abubakar since assuming the high post has worked tirelessly to upgrade Nigeria’s police force.
Months before the kidnapping of nearly 300 school girls in the Borno State town of Chibok, Abubakar said 16,000 policemen out of the 50,000 would go for Intelligence Training, while another 10,000 will go for Detective Training.
He added that the newly promoted Assistant Inspector Generals of Police underwent a two-week management course in Lagos.
As for the explosion, no group has claimed responsibility for the bombing. But many suspect it is the work of the Boko Haram. More details to follow in this late breaking story.
