Three persons died, yesterday, while seven others were injured when a teenage female suicide bomber blew up herself at the entrance gate of Central Administration of Kano State Polytechnic located on BUK road where final years students were perusing the NYSC mobilisations list for Batch B Corps members.

The incident occurred around 2.30p.m. when a crowd of students gathered to verify their postings.
The account further explained that the blast triggered pandemonium in the school as students, academic and non-academic staff scampered for safety.

The security operatives later cordoned off the affected part of the busy BUK road to pave way for preliminary investigation.

Commenting on the incident, the Commissioner of police, Kano, Mr. Adelenre Shinaba confirmed that three persons died including the suicide bomber.

Shinaba further disclosed that seven others sustained injury during the blast, adding that the affected persons have been evacuated to the clinic.

He tasked citizens to be extra-vigilant and report suspicious movements to security agents for proactive action. This brings to four, the number of female suicide bombers, who carried out bomb attacks in Kano in one week.
